The project will assess the impact of different development trajectories in the Akagera Watershed on food, energy and water security and the environment; key elements within EDPRS 2. It will build grass-root community enterprises, as models for integrating key elements of the water, energy and food security nexus.

The project is funded by FONERWA (the Rwandan Green Fund) and coordinated by the Albertine Rift Conservation Society (ARCOS) Network in collaboration with SEI, the Nile Equatorial Lakes Subsidiary Action Programme (NELSAP), the Districts of Bugesera, Kirehe, Ngororero and Rutsiro, and various stakeholders and sectors involved in water, energy and agriculture in the selected Landscapes along Akagera Basin.
