Program Description:
ENSP 111: International Environmental Seminar: Ecotourism, Conservation, and Development in Post-Genocide Rwanda
Michael Renner & Madeleine Nyiratuza
AOI Global and Cultural Understanding
Course Description: This course will help students develop an understanding of Rwanda's growth and development since the genocide, with a focus on how sustainability and environmental protection has been one of the central principles in that process. We will begin with an examination of contemporary Rwanda, including consideration of the 1994 genocide as the touchstone event for everything in this country. We will then use the national parks as case studies, including Akagera (privately managed, and in a different type of ecosystem than the others), Volcanoes (with a very narrow focus on the gorillas, which are a source of hard currency to fund conservation efforts), Nyungwe (a traditional management model, relatively highly developed, in a rainforest ecology), and Gishwati (a new national park and also a reforestation and reclamation project with a significant community engagement component, which is still evolving).
Estimated Range: $5,020-5,880
