The Ministry of Education (MINEDUC) has revealed that some Rwanda researchers are discouraged by inadequate funding to effectively carry research despite the importance of research outcomes in addressing such issues climate change.
This was revealed by Dr. Marie- Christine Gasingirwa, the Director of Science, Technology and Research in MINEDUC in a meeting assessing how to uplift capacities aimed at promoting research in energy that brought together some Rwandan researchers and various research experts from Africa and across the World.
She said that Rwanda has researchers but face obstacles of inadequate funding, an issue which has to be addressed.
“They have been connected to financiers to enable them carry out research on the causes and mitigation efforts in climate change and energy,” she said.
With clearly defined early warning systems established through research, it becomes easier to mitigate and adopt resilient approaches to climate change effects.
