WHAT IS A REGIONAL CENTRE OF EXPERTISE (RCE)?
Established by the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) in 2003, Regional Centers of Expertise developed out of a project for Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) after the United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) stressed the need to reorient existing education towards sustainability. The ESD project designed and implemented research and development activities through two flagship initiatives: a global multi-stakeholder global network of Regional Centers of Expertise on ESD (RCEs) and a network of higher education institutions. Currently, over 157 RCEs have been officially acknowledged by the United Nations University worldwide.
