Africa and Middle East

Since 2011, the UNU-IAS in collaboration with the Southern African Development Community Regional Environmental Education Programme (SADC-REEP) has been implementing a capacity development programme for African RCEs. Under this initiative, three workshops and two continental meetings have been held. Four focal areas have been identified as being central to strengthening capacities of African RCEs to respond to sustainable development challenges in their regions. These are transformative learning, network governance, collaborative partnerships and community-engaged research.
