REMA should be lauded

Editor, I’ve just learnt that the Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) is shooting a documentary that will portray Gishwati forest’s rehabilitation. This documentary is slated to be screened on World Environment Day on the fifth of June.

Editor,

I’ve just learnt that the Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) is shooting a documentary that will portray Gishwati forest’s rehabilitation. This documentary is slated to be screened on World Environment Day on the fifth of June.

I am an avid environmentalist, and the plight of Gishwati forest broke my heart. Now its great to hear that this essential forest resource is being resurrected from the dead, Lazarus-like.

I am sure that some of the floods that ravaged parts close to Gishwati suffered this fate because of the loss of the tree cover that Gishwati forest availed.

I want to thank REMA for being on the forefront of the environmental struggle. Without advocacy and educational campaign, I’m sure that Rwanda wouldn’t be as ‘Green’ as it is presently. I hope greater things will come in the future.
