Research and projects

Its extreme scenic diversity and its biodiversity make Rwanda a country of great scientific interest. Rwanda ranges from less than 1,000 to 4,500 m above sea level and thus unites such diverse habitats as dry savannah and cloud forests despite its small size. At the same time, Rwanda, one of Africa's most densely populated countries, faces numerous problems such as poverty reduction, underdevelopment, overexploitation of natural resources and landscape degradation.

Research work in Rwanda is a particular concern of the University of Koblenz-Landau. This involves the transfer of scientific findings into practice through capacity building and implementation projects.

It is therefore obvious that the participating scientists at the University of Koblenz-Landau - in addition to their current research work - carry out long-term projects, the aim of which is to promote sustainable development in Rwanda.

The research activities and projects are spread over several disciplines and subject areas.
