On behalf of RCE-Greater Pwani (Kenya), I would like to wish all RCE members very best wishes as we join individual efforts in marking the World Environmental Day. We at Pwani, have welcomed this special event, set for 5th June, by hosting a pre-WED where local schools and the community were invited for a tree planting session.

I call for all RCE members to have an input on this special event (WED). Apart from creating awareness, we may also choose to reach out to the community in our regions to educated them on environmental sustainablity issues.

Dear RCE Youth,

Back in February the 5th, 2014 at the TERI University campus in Delhi, RCE Youth representatives across the entire continent gather to continue deliberations to set a direction for the Global RCE Youth Network. During the RCE Youth Session in Delhi, discussions were held and necessary contributions were made which invariably gave the Network a strategic direction.

At this juncture, we would like to hear your feedback before the 9th Global RCE Conference on:

JOIN NOW! The 9th Global RCE Conference Higher Education Discussion Group

Higher education institutions have a central role in enabling scalability of regional sustainability initiatives within an RCE and global sustainability initiatives frameworks. RCEs can play a key role in the transformation of higher education institutions as well as in the up-scaling of ESD initiatives for the benefit of society.



To achieve Sustainable Development, a fundamental change is necessary in the way people think and act. I would like to thank and congratulate the United Nations University (UNU) for their great efforts in ensuring advancement of ESD through Regional Centres of Expertise (RCEs) around the world.

In a world where networking is trending, I must say, establishing around 129 RCEs is by far a great achievement UNU has made. Bravo!!!

Effects of Climate Change: The Case with Africa

Dear All,

Climate change threatens to disrupt the weakest economies and disadvantage the poorest people in developing countries, African continent is the least emitter of green house gas but yet, the continent is the worst affected by climate change.

In today’s modern world, Africa is reeling from climate change. Floods, famine, drought, food shortages are buffeting the vulnerable continent which lacks the resources to protect itself. This affects largely its effort to manage sea flow, lakes and open aquifers.
