African Ministers of Environment recently endorsed the African Environmental Education and Training Action Plan (AEETAP) 2015 – 2024 at the 15th Ordinary Session of the African Ministerial Conference on the Environment (AMCEM), held in Dusit Hotel, Cairo, Egypt, on 3 March 2015.

Endorsed as a living document, AEETAP will contribute to the achievement of the African Regional Flagship Programmes, the Action Plan of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development, Africa Union Agenda 2063 and the Post 2015 SGD – Goal 4 (Education).

The main objective of the AEETAP is to enhance community environmental education and training within the continent, through various formal education; training; life-long learning; and capacity building programmes and projects. These are envisaged to fundamentally enhance the environmental, societal and economic state of Africa for the benefit of Africa’s people, and closely aligned to the 5 AMCEN Flagship Programmes.
