Re: Rwanda to issue green building certificates in 2018 (The New Times March 5, 2017)

This needs more capacity building for the implementers like architects, engineers builders and even the people working with relevant government institutions like Rwanda Housing Authority, the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Ministry of National Resources.

This will enable smooth operationalisation of the policy because it is new and unknown to many.

Moving forward, a special course on this specific policy should be introduced in universities and technical schools.
