ICON supports Rwanda Green Fund FONERWA
ICON as lead company of an international consulting joint venture recently started a new assignment in Rwanda which aims at supporting FONERWA, the Rwandan National Fund for the Environment. The official kick-off meeting took place in Kigali on 24 January 2020 in the presence of the FONERWA Management, representatives of the donors KfW, DFID and SIDA (represented by the Swedish Embassy) and the consultant’s team. The Project will be carried out over a period of two years.
Services that will be provided include governance and management support to FONERWA and a variety of tasks focusing at Environmental and Social Monitoring (ESMF), resource mobilisation strategies, gender inclusion, coaching of Civil Society Organisations in developing FONERWA project proposals and many others.
A multi-disciplinary team consisting of international and national experts has resumed its work in Rwanda and will be guided and supported throughout Project execution by ICON’s backstopping organisation in Cologne.
