Education for Sustainable Development in Africa (ESDA)


The ESDA Project aims to develop and test a graduate-level education programme for professionals to be engaged in sustainable development in Africa. The project is based on UNU’s network with higher education institutions in Africa and Japan and international organizations which are active in this area, such as UNESCO, UNEP and UN-HABITAT. At its completion planned for March 2011, UNU-ISP hopes to come up with a concrete plan for full implementation of a Masters-level programme of education for sustainable development in Africa.
