What did the COP22 achieve for Africa?
Most climate scientists, governments and program planners agree that African nations are blessed with abundant natural resources, with the potential for nations like Rwanda, South Africa or COP22 host nation Morocco to refashion themselves as leaders in the renewable energy sector. By 2030, about 22 percent of Africa’s energy can become renewably sourced; in the run up to the COP22, Morocco pledged that 52 percent of its energy will come from renewables by 2030. And the eye-popping 580MW Noor solar power plant is one way to do it.

ACNR started the soil and sediment finger printing to implement CEPF project. The first sampling period of soil and sediment took place on 15-18th November 2016 in Nyamasheke District. This project CEPF focuses on climate change resilience through a scientific approach of soil and sediment collection and analysis to get the sources of sediments in the rivers and lakes. Rusizi River and Lake Kivu catchments shared between Rwanda, Burundi and DRC were selected as study sites. Under severe erosion, flooding, the river gets polluted and the amount of energy generated from it declines for example. Additionally, species extinction, drought and poverty arise from those disasters. It is not known if the hydro-power produced from Rusizi River has reduced so far; but these two catchments house Key Biodiversity Areas and Important Birds Areas which suffer from climate change impacts.
