EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
The Education for Sustainable Development Programme was launched in 2012.
This programme aims to empower schools, communities and regional partners with knowledge and capacity building to ensure sustainable use and management of natural resources. It seeks to address the rights of children and youth to education, improved healthcare and a sustainable environment.
Poverty reduction lies at the core of the programme as access to these basic needs are linked to poverty. The East Africa ESD programme is currently working in two landscapes; Lake Victoria landscape and Lamu land and seascape. The Lake Victoria Catchment Environmental Programme (LVCEP), a transboundary programme working in the Lake Victoria Basin in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda.
The Lamu ESD Programme is working in the coastal region under the Kenya Coastal Programme.
