Rwanda Minister of Natural Resources Stanislas Kamanzi has urged residents of Nyabihu District to actively participate in the restoration of the region’s degraded soil, water, land and forest resources.
Kamanzi made the remarks, November 24, shortly after a massive plantation of agro-forestry species on the hills surrounding Lake Karago.
The afforestation activities are in line with landscape restoration program.
Nyabihu has been facing various challenges including soil erosion, landslides and some incidences where disasters claimed lives of innocents.
Rwanda has since embarked on different measures to tackle those effects through the protection of the environment, including forest and wetlands restoration.
