Rwanda’s Climate Adaptation MEL System in the Agriculture Sector

The Ministry of Environment in Rwanda initiated a Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) framework focusing on the agriculture sector. This framework aims to enhance climate resilience within the sector, which is vital given agriculture’s significant contribution to the economy, and its vulnerability to climate shocks.

Through a series of case studies, the program explored the effectiveness of adaptation strategies such as drought-resistant seeds, irrigation practices, and crop and livestock insurance, revealing substantial improvements in productivity, resilience, and sustainability in line with Rwanda’s nationally determined contribution (NDC) goals. The initiative’s success demonstrated the critical role of adaptive actions in addressing climate vulnerabilities and highlighted ongoing efforts to evaluate and expand adaptation measures in agriculture.
