Realism: Climate change a source of extreme poverty and inequality in public life. Case Study: Rwanda
Rwanda is the most amazing country on the continent. in view of the tragic events of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi. After 26 years of genocide, Rwanda’s development is much faster than neighboring countries such as the DRC and Burundi. Rwanda is the third most developed country in Africa after South Africa and Zambia. Yet, even though the population plays a major role in development, climate change has a serious impact on them and sometimes causes people to corrupt for their own benefit other than destabilize the country’s economy. Climate change and its impacts inside the country are in a state of slowing development as some of the country’s top leaders are filling it. It is important that everyone respects their role in maintaining our sovereignty, in collaboration with the fight against change in climate and thus breaking the same rope to build the country we want, as Rwandans and for all others to emulate.
Climate change docility refers to the transdisciplinary field that introduces a variety of allied self-discipline in the natural, connected, and social sciences. However, climate alleviation is about restraining greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation of the developments and alterations that societies, ecosystems, and superintended systems perform to not only limit the repercussions of climate change but also to consider the recognition of new opportunities. Sometimes transitioning new technology lead to changing the way we live. Change is fundamentally about a transformation from one determination domain to another. For instance, in the economic situation, corporations have always modified to new markets and also removing equipment concatenations—a mess to do so means going out of business. However, environment change continues a dimension that is proceeding to create both risk and possibilities for businesses and regional economies
Change in climate a source of disparities in the community.
Speculations of climate change attempt to explain the agitation in equity markets and communities originating from changing user preferences based on a given geographical expression of infrastructural and institutional dimensions to modify climate change repercussions. For illustration, in Rwanda, low and moderate-income citizens remaining in weak market areas, hence find themselves more priced out from increased uncertain investment in these imperfect markets. However, climate gentrification plays out in a difference of physiography exposed to forest fires, water deficiencies, and avalanches hence encouraging the frequency and intensity of climate change consequences.
Climate change, drought, and floods in the history of Rwanda have cost much money. For instance, from 1943 to 1944. Rwanda attacked by the famine called Ruzagayura which was led by Belgium colonials and led to numerous deaths and a huge population migration out of the territory and into the neighboring Belgian Congo and surrounding regions. The effects of climate change are expected to increase and increase the impact of these factors, which could jeopardize food security, health, and economic development. To address this, the Government of Rwanda and other non-profit donors have launched a campaign that shows weaknesses and climate change, especially as Rwanda now has unprecedented rainfall and is devastating in many parts of the country. However, there are still many weaknesses to fight against climate change, in the context of protecting the environment, the population, and the sovereignty of the country. Integration is the only way to help us tackle climate change in the context of sustainable development, address the needs of the underprivileged in the country, and put in place climate change strategies that focus on environmental issues and how to address them. Addressing these issues requires overcoming and addressing existing barriers to access and access to information, as well as limited capacity to conduct climate analysis and hydrology and planning
Biodiversity Network in Rwanda.
In Rwanda, 95 percent of the population is dependent on the land for livelihood and development. The country is made up of a variety of organisms where 47% are plants and common plants, while 32% are grasses of different species, 12% are forests, while 8% are water and swamps and other small and fertile plants. All economic activities and products are supported by ecosystems that are based on the health and well-being of the people, as well as the large economy of Rwanda. The network is also highly visible in all parts of the country and is able to cope with climate change in exceptional circumstances and there are also concerns that such changes could cause low and present economic problems and therefore require new measures that could increase the future model of to meet the nature of the organism. It is possible that the effects of climate change and climate change will have an impact on Rwanda’s commitment to protecting its people and the environment as a whole.
Various types of climate change, such as erosion, invasive species, population growth, and heavy rainfall and hunting for natural resources such as animals, affect these organisms and can be the root cause of climate change and thus cause serious environmental problems. and all over the world. In addition, the pressure of democracy on the ecosystem increases the climate change due to, for example, accelerating the use of natural resources such as declining resources, such as forests, industry, grazing, and many other human activities that can also have plays an important role in the destruction of Rwanda’s climate and the destruction of large numbers of species.
Challenges and opportunities for the community development field in the area of climate adaptation.
When challenges of climate change intensified, it increases inadequate adaptive capacity in highly considerable and also changing theories and practices in the international gain and conservation community continuously. These changes happen in acknowledgment of experiences gained in precise procedures, but also the effect of more slight alterations in global standards and benefits.
Even-though factors to express climate change adaptability in the community are complex and diversified; but, changes in demographic, socioeconomic, and legislative systems prove the real opportunities in rural areas to be excellent sources to adjust climate change and foster sustainable progress.
Realistic measures to combat climate change
Since 2011, the government of Rwanda delivered what she called Green Growth and Climate Resilience National Strategy for climate change and decrease Carbon Development. That strategy aimed to keep building and focusing on the various projects and policies in a holistic national document that encompasses the long-term direction as well as short-term priority actions. Currently, Rwanda is receiving too much rainfall, which is leading a high impact on some Rwandan families due to floods. Then, the strategy will keep step up on a pathway that drives to a sustainable, secure future where Rwanda has prepared for the risks correlated with climate change, population growth, and escalating kerosene prices.
Many procedures to be achieved are highlighted, and tactics set a frame to mainstreaming climate change and the green growth program in national socio-economic planning. It also contributes to mechanisms through mobilizing funding to finance programs identified in the process. It is also expected to keep contributing to promoting employment, particularly youth people and other groups with tremendous levels of vulnerability to climate change.
In the Strategy, Rwanda designed policies to fight against and keep reducing climate resilience and carbon development to addressing both acclimatization and reduction, while concentrating on economic growth and poverty reduction. Rwandan community has discovered the significant opportunities to leapfrog old technologies and unfavorable development pathways and strengthen green prosperity that is flexible to crashes human life and activities not limited to the enormously change in the climate.
