    Development of sustainable fertilizer production and use

    Activities: (2016 - 2030)
    This Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) for the agriculture sector in Rwanda focuses on the development and implementation of sustainable fertilizer production and use accomplished across several subsector component programs including:

    • creation of up to 600 community cattle agribusiness cooperatives for organic composting of fertilizers for reductions of animal enteric GHG emissions and use of other field residues for composting, in lieu of burning
    • improved production for producing finely granulated natural lime found in abundance in Musanze, Karongi and Rusizi districts of Rwanda
    • improved and sustainable agricultural fertilizer applications, soil erosion measures, and improved agronomic management of soils capacity development programs implemented through Rwanda’s agricultural extension service and farmer schools in rural areas.

    The key mitigation actions include the collection and production of livestock manure for organic fertilizer, improved efficiency in lime production & application, elimination and reduction of vertical lime burning, and improved agronomic management of soils, fertilizers, and crop yields.
