Socio-economic Assessment of the Blue Economy in Rwanda- Discussion of Draft Document and Toolkit
Using the UNECA Blue Economy Toolkit in 2020, we estimated that the Blue Economy in Rwanda is valued modestly at 2.6% of GDP (excluding farming in the wetlands) and employs 3.5% of the labour force. However, Blue Economy sectors contribute critical inputs into the rest of the economy, for example providing more than half of the country’s energy production through hydropower and methane.
On 11 May 2021, 13:00 to 15:00 (Rwanda local time, GMT+2) we will be hosting a virtual national consultation to share more about the toolkit, and to discuss the updated results of the Rwanda case study.To join, either email email@example.com to request a calendar invitaion or click the link below to join the meeting:
