In a notable development, His Majesty, who also established the Circular Bioeconomy Alliance in 2020, was introduced to the newly launched African NGOs Alliance for Environmental Sustainability (ANAES), an initiative by the Albertine Rift Conservation Society (ARCOS), Circular Bioeconomy Alliance (CBA) and committed NGOs in Africa. His Majesty embraced and commended this initiative as a vital solution to address environmental challenges on the continent.

His Majesty visited one of ARCOS’ sites in Rwanda in 2022 during the Commonwealth meeting in Kigali. During this visit, he had the opportunity to witness collective landscape restoration efforts aimed at enhancing climate change resilience in the region.
