This paper is divided into the following sections: - a background discussion of the Rwanda CSP (Section 3); - an evaluation of environment-poverty integration in the Rwanda CSP (Tier 1 evaluation)(Section 4); - identification of environment-poverty weaknesses in the Rwanda CSP (Tier 2) (Section5); - case studies/descriptions of the environment-poverty gaps of the Rwanda CSP (Section6); - response strategies and opportunities to address the environment-poverty concerns (Section 7). Recommendations on response strategies have been developed to be of relevance to WWF - specifically to WWF's Eastern Africa Regional Programme Office (EARPO) responsible for Rwanda - as well as to the EC Rwanda country delegation, and other Rwandan stakeholders (e.g., government agencies, private institutions, and other NGOs). It is recommended that WWF seek alignment with initiatives in Rwanda's focal ecoregions to address the environment-poverty concerns: for Rwanda, the Albertine Rift Montane Forests, East African Moorlands, and Rift Valley Lakes ecosystems.
