Forest Landscape Restoration in Rwanda

Rwanda recognizes the importance of forest landscapes for its socio-economic transformation goals. The Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy - EDPRS2 and the Vision 2020 provide a roadmap for forest cover increase up to 30% of the total country. To date, Rwanda has about 28.8% forest cover (of which 37 percent are humid natural forests and Savannahs). In 2004, forest cover was 19.6% meaning we have registered a growth of 1% per year for the last decade.
