The Conservation Division of the Rwanda Development Board has the task of maintaining, enhancing and sustaining the ecological integrity, health and productivity of Rwanda’s ecosystems. National parks are one of the means for achieving this. The country has three National Parks—Volcanoes National Park, Nyungwe National Park, and Akagera National Park. The proposed New Wildlife Policy provides for the establishment of additional national parks as well as other categories of Protected Areas.
Through all these efforts Rwanda is able to boast an exceptional record of protecting its ecosystems and the biodiversity within them. Continuous research, partnerships, adherence to national, regional and international regulations, and extensive monitoring and evaluation is evidence of our complete dedication and commitment to the protection of Rwanda’s natural assets.
