Rwanda – Emerging in a Changing Climate (video)

Filmmaker and environmentalist, John D. Liu from the Environmental Education Media Project team, takes us to Rwanda again (last time was here), showing us how the country is seeking to leapfrog the disastrous ‘development‘ route most of the countries of the North have gone down, to instead head more directly towards sustainability. Given the horrors this country were awash with during the 1990s, it’s certainly encouraging to see the nation making some good truly forward steps on several fronts.

  1. Nice to see some positive change in Rwanda. I hope they do not let in foreign interests (so called investment and ban agro chemicals as another example) too much more and do things themselves. I was surprised not to hear Permaculture mentioned as I thought Geoff had been or was going to be doing some consulting there. I think that with some permaculture tweaking of what they are doing will speed up regeneration and self reliance.

    Let’s hope other countries in Africa will change course and follow this kind of example.
