PERSGA Regional Initiative on Education for Sustainability (RIEFS) of Marine and Coastal Resources
This Initiative will contribute to PERSGA efforts in protecting coastal and marine resources and to improve the accessibility and effectiveness of coastal education and capacity building initiatives. The Initiative will study and evaluate experiences in management and community education to identify the critical success factors associated with management and change outcomes in coastal management. Furthermore, a major output of the Programme is the development of an indicators tool for coastal management education and capacity building. The indicator tool will assist in promoting good practice and assessing how current initiatives are aligned with the objectives of the Jeddah Convention and the PERSGA Operational Framework. The pilot phase for the RIEFS will be launched in one or two of the PERSGA Member States during 2006-2007. Accordingly, and based on the evaluation results of the pilot phase, the project will be expanded as a regional initiative to be implemented in all PERSGA Member States.
In this filed PERSGA published two guidelines for the education and sustainability (Education Guidelines for Sustainable Development and School Guidelines for Sustainable Development)
