The Government of Rwanda has agreements with African Parks to manage Akagera and Nyungwe National Parks located in Eastern and Western provinces respectively.
In 2009, African Parks signed a joint management agreement with the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) establishing the Akagera Management Company (AMC) in 2010 with board members from both the RDB and African Parks jointly managing the park.
This collaborative partnership has overseen a number of flagship projects, which have not only created employment for local communities, but also enhanced the park’s tourism appeal and mitigated human-wildlife conflict.
On 7th October 2019, RDB signed agreements with African Parks to manage Nyungwe National Park for 20 years.
