In partnership with Conservation International, the Rwandan Environmental Management Authority and the Rwanda Development Board, ICF will field-test for the Payments for Ecosystem Services scheme with communities neighboring Rugezi Marsh as well as developing baseline data for Nyabarongo and Akanyaru wetlands.
