The ambassador of Israel to Rwanda, Dr. Ron Adam has visited Nyandungu Urban Wetland Eco-Tourism Park along with Juliet Kabera, the Director General of Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA).

“I was delighted for the tour at the new Nyandungu Eco-Tourism Center and Park in Kigali with Juliet Kabera, the Director General of REMA. Amazing work by the Environment Authority for conservation of nature at the marshland,“ reads part of the ambassador’s message posted on Twitter.

Completed recently, the park worth Rwf5.2 billion is located in the sectors of Ndera in Gasabo district and Nyarugunga in Kicukiro district.

The project was designed in 2015 and works started in 2016. The goal was for the works to be done in two phases with a completion date in 2020 but there were delays because of redesigning the project and change of the contractor.

It was sponsored by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Government of Italy, Rwanda Green Fund (FONERWA) and implemented by REMA.

Nyandungu Urban Wetland Eco-Tourism Park is composed of ornamental ponds, gallery forests, medicinal plant gardens, paved walk ways and cycle lanes, restaurants, information center, recreational and other biodiversity services. It is meant to attract both foreign and local visitors in the City of Kigali.

The project is not only expected to provide social and economic benefits to the communities but also support innovative approaches to restore and conserve wetland ecosystems on 120 Ha of land organized in 5 sections, promote the sustainable management of natural resources and support livelihood diversification to enhance incomes for local communities.
