Challenges and gaps
The foregoing chapters provided an indication of the cur- rent status, capabilities and requirements for environmental information management in Rwanda. This section of the re- port synthesizes the findings by presenting an analysis of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) re- garding environmental information management. Hopefully, this analysis will provide REMA with some insight into areas which could be improved.
The SWOT analysis is presented in Table 3 along the following lines: •
Institutions and management of environmental informa- tion
• Availability of core datasets • Application of existing data and information •
Existence of networking activities
• Capacity building • Policy and legal framework
