Bubu Jallow, the CC-DARE programme manager for Sub-Saharan Africa, made the remarks during a national joint monitoring and evaluation workshop on climatic change awareness held Muhanga district, in the southern province yesterday.
He noted that Rwanda's approach of engaging the civil society in addressing issues of climatic change has yielded significant results.
"This example should be taken up by other sub-Saharan countries- which should create a proper system of organization and implementation by shifting from using the central government as key implementer and involve the civil society," he said.
Jallow also stated that Rwanda needs to address the issue of settlements-which are mostly prone to danger caused by landslides and heavy rains. He noted the Giswati experience of land use should be duplicated countrywide to avoid such environmental risks.

Three ecbi Fellows, Amjad Abdullah (Maldives), Bubu Pateh Jallow (The Gambia)and Mohammad Reazuddin (Bangladesh) have written an Opinion Piece on Operationalising the Kyoto Protocol's Adaptation Fund, a topic that will loom
Following a request for information regarding North-South trust building activities from the floor at the high-level panel of the Development and Adaptation Days during the recent Montreal Climate Change Conference, Mr Bubu Pateh Jallow (lead negotiator of The Gambia), told the participants about the ecbi in general, and the Oxford Fellowships, in particular.
He conveyed the praise of his fellow negotiators who had participated in the 2005 Fellowships and his personal assessment that the ecbi activities had led to closer North-South relations during the Montreal negotiations.
He also suggested that it might be useful in this context if the European negotiators would find the time to visit their developing country colleagues to get a proper picture of the constraints they find themselves in.
