President hosts top climate change meet
NYARUGENGE - President Paul Kagame yesterday morning opened the Africa Climate Change Forum, a high-level event held at Kigali Serena Hotel and organized by the London School of Economics (LSE) in partnership with the Government. In his opening remarks, the President expressed his delight in addressing the high-level assembly – policy makers, business leaders, academia and environment experts, among others. “We appreciate the fact that many of you have traveled from overseas and from the region to join us,” Kagame said, saying it confirmed the event’s importance. “Forging relationships and bringing together relevant stakeholders to share insights and wisdom on how to deal with climate change is vital,” he further underscored, while emphasizing the need to “pool efforts” in order to allay the effects of climate change.
