New policy for Rwanda urban forestry

Officials say unselective species of trees have been planted across Kigali – the capital of Rwanda – and other towns around the country with no regard to international standards for urban forestry. It is against this background that the government has embarked on formulating a policy, which will complement the Kigali City Master plan and the national green-growth agenda. This is so property developers also get to plan for urban afforestation while putting into consideration specific species of trees to grow in cities and towns.
