Indigenous trees to take up 40% of Rwanda's forests in order to access the carbon market

The Government of Rwanda is planning to plant more trees, of which 40 per cent must be indigenous species, in order to access the carbon market, The New Times has learnt. The country plants 30-40 million tree seedlings every year.

Researchers are carrying out experiments on restoring 20 degraded indigenous (native) tree species so as to recommend those that are resistant to drought and can sequester large quantities of carbon dioxide to cope with climate change.

Concorde Nsengumuremyi, the Director General of Rwanda Forestry Authority, said the carbon market framework to help Rwanda compete on the international carbon market has been completed and is awaiting approval in the coming months.

                      These native trees are the best, they are essential to the function of an area's ecosystem, providing not only oxygen for humans and other animal species but also increasing the quality of soil and helping with climate regulation.
