The Southern African Development Community – Regional Environmental Education Programme (SADC REEP) is a Centre of Excellence of SADC whose mission is to facilitate human capacity development for environment, sustainability, human and ecosystem resilience.
Since its inception in 1997 the SADC REEP has been implemented by WESSA, chosen by SADC as the preferred executing agent.
The programme realises its outcomes through change-oriented learning and training, trans-boundary networking, collaborative research, resource materials development and policy support. Various sectors are participating including government, cross-border natural resources & water management, agriculture, local authorities, teacher & higher education and schools among others. The aim is to build future capabilities for institutional and human agency, stewardship and leadership.
