"The National Environment management Authority (REMA) has called for a well planned and organised way of resettling the people fleeing into the country as result of conflicts especially those being resettled in refugee camps. According to the Atlas of Rwanda's changing environment released last week, there is a likely increase of climate change and associated environmental catastrophes."
"The report indicates that the trans-border movement of people and their subsequent resettlement occasionally causes a range of environmental pressures especially in the already overpopulated areas.
It adds that this is compounded in situations where these movements and settlements are unplanned."
