Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) through its department of Environmental education and mainstreaming (DEEM) and the support from Poverty-Environment Actions for Sustainable Development Goals conducts on fiscal year basis an assessment of integration and implementation of environment and climate change activities into Sector Ministries’ and Districts’ Plans and Programmes, in order to implement her mandate of supervising, monitoring and ensuring that environment and climate change interventions are integrated in all national development programmes.
The aim of this assessment is to find out the level of implementation of environment and climate change (ECC) activities in the Sectors and districts’ plans/reports and provide recommendations on issues that require special attention to support concerned Sectors and districts to better plan for further achievements. The report also takes into consideration the budget spent on environment and climate change interventions in relation to the total national budget spent by districts and sectors for the fiscal year 2017/18.
The focus is made on the evaluation of ECC related Key Performance Indicators (KPI). Each KPI is linked to the ECC targets that was set by the concerned Sector at the beginning of the year in line with ECC checklist 2017-2018 developed by REMA and disseminated to budget agencies by the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning (MINECOFIN) as an annex to the Budget Call Circular. The assessment also depended on national programmes such as Vision 2020, EDPRS II thematic areas, Green Growth Strategy programmes of action and Seven Year Government Plan targets.
