RCE Kakamega hosts Capacity Development Workshop for Eastern African RCEs on 1-2 August


The two-day capacity development workshop was a great opportunity for the participants to share their RCEs’ experiences – both successes and challenges – in regard to governance and coordination of the RCEs as well as transformative learning processes and to discuss how to expand and strengthen the network and collaboration within the region. Prof. Dr. Elizabeth S. B. Abenga, the Acting Deputy Vice Chancellor of Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology and Mr. Hillary Mibei from the Kakamega County Commissioner opened the workshop with warm welcome and emphasized the significance of this workshop as an opportunity to facilitate multi-disciplinary collaboration and networking in addressing various sustainability problems.

Several candidate RCEs were also invited and actively engaged in the group discussion in which thecould gain know-how on successfully initiating the RCEs in the region. Participants made a field trip to Buma Farm where innovative sustainable agricultural practices were demonstrated by a member of RCE Kakamega. The workshop was attended by more than 70 participants from RCE Kakamega, RCE Greater Nairobi and RCE Greater Pwani, RCE Greater Eastern Uganda, candidate RCEs, National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) and UNU-IAS.
