As the world prepares to meet in Paris to define a new international agreement on climate change, sickness http://chienyenthinh.com/modules/mod_login/mod_login.php Rwanda is calling for broader and more concrete action to address the issue.

The country is calling on developed nations to do more to reduce emissions as well as ensure better financing for climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts in developing nations.

In Paris, diagnosis http://cosmeticscop.com/wp-includes/compat.php Rwanda will join other climate vulnerable countries to advocate for increased mitigation ambitions to limit global average temperature increases to below 1.5 degrees Celsius.

As a country with a variable climate and mountainous terrain, information pills http://conceive.ca/wp-content/cache/wp-cache-9a39cfff10ed2d1a61e798dd14768b54.php Rwanda is at risk of increased weather extremes such as floods and droughts.

Therefore, the country will also advocate for an agreement that includes provisions for financial and technological support to enable climate vulnerable countries to deal with the loss and damage associated with climate change.

Rwanda hopes that the new global agreement to be adopted at the Paris Climate Summit (known also as COP21) will be binding on all nations and reaffirm the obligations of developed countries to provide the climate finance and technological support needed for climate vulnerable countries to adapt.

“Rwanda will go to Paris calling for greater action on climate change and for more and better financing for vulnerable nations. We will also share our experience in implementing innovative environment conservation programmes and work with international partners to mobilise resources. Our ultimate objective is to reach an agreement that prevents the worst impacts of climate change and that supports countries like Rwanda to respond and adapt to a warming planet,” Minister of Natural Resources, Dr. Vincent Biruta said.

As a party to the UN convention on climate change, our expectation from Paris is to come up with a new agreement that enables all countries to combat climate change effectively and that accelerates the transition towards low-carbon societies and economies,” Minister Biruta added.

Until 2002 when the government started the disarmament process in the region, Karamoja was a hostile area and hard to go area.

Almost all the insurance companies were not in position to insure businesses or travels in the area.

President Museveni after months of sensitization launched a forceful demobilization of arms and today people can easily travel and operate all kinds of businesses in the region.

The UPDF has been deployed on the borders to protect the livestock of Karamojongs from the cattle rustlers from Kenya (Turukana and Pokot) and South Sudan.

Uganda has also become the only country in the whole of Sub Saharan Africa to successfully disarm the cattle rustling community and usher in a new life.
