WHAT IS RWANDA'S GREEN FUND?
Rwanda's Green Fund (FONERWA) is a groundbreaking environment and climate change fund. Its purpose is to be the engine for the next 50 years of green growth in Rwanda, while serving as a touchstone for Africa and the rest of the world. Its strategy is to provide unheralded technical and financial support to the best public and private projects that align with Rwanda’s commitment to a green economy.
OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE
To respond to Rwanda’s current and future financing needs for environment, climate change, and green growth in order to accelerate goals of national sustainable economic development.
HOW THE FUND WORKS
FONERWA carries out a formalized process of public Calls For Proposals (CFPs) presently scheduled every 6 month. During a one month window of opportunity, applicants submit their project concepts, known as Project Profile Documents (PPDs), developed according to pre-established criteria. All proposals received by stipulated deadline are then taken through a rigorous screening process.
The FONERWA project/programme proposal screening will be carried out in a fair, transparent, competitive multi-step process. This will be overseen by the Fund Management Team (FMT)/Secretariat with ultimate funding decisions made by the Fund Managing Committee (FMC) based on evaluations and recommendations provided by the FMT & Fund Technical Committee FTC.
