This report reviews the brief, tumultuous history, laudable accomplishments, and difficulties of DAI and colleague's Rwanda Natural Resources Management Project (NRMP) from October 1990, to June 1994. USAID created the NRMP in 1988 as a regrouping of several natural resource activities and NGOs supported by the Rwanda mission. The NRMP was designed with the objectives of combating erosion, promoting sustainable agriculture in marshlands, conserving natural forests, and building effective action and cooperation among government bodies dealing with the environment. Any hopes for project implementation were quickly overrun by the genocide and war in Rwanda. In its very brief functional life, NRMP achievements included the following: Managing the process leading to review and formal approval by the Rwandan government of the National Environmental Strategy for Rwanda (SNER) and the National Environmental Action Plan (NEAP); Advocating the preparation of acceptable environmental impact statements as a sine qua non to obtaining donor approval of programs and projects; Integrating the SNER/NEAP into the three-year Rwanda Public Investment Program; Assisting Rwandan government agencies and nongovernmental organizations in the preparation of realistic annual work plans.
