Project: The 3-rd Central Asian Leadership Programme on Environment for Sustainable Development
Partners: United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Government of Norway, AIT, RRC.AP UNEP and Kazakhstani Business Council for Sustainable Development (KBCSD)
Programme period: 2012
The Programme is conducting in Central Asia already the third time, and based on interactive sessions with the focus on 3 specific dimensions: the human dimension, the environmental dimension and the sustainable development dimension. The concepts of mind, body and soul are incorporated into contextual and relational aspects of leadership skills as part of the human dimension.
Participants are offered state of the art knowledge on environmental issues and challenges, taking into account key ecosystems services. In addition, specific discussions explored inter-linkages of environmental issues with economic and social issues, the three pillars of sustainable development.
The Leadership Programme draws upon the experience of the Asia Pacific Leadership Programme on Environment for Development which has been convened on an annual basis over the past 8 years, since 2004, at Tongji University in Shanghai, China, in coordination with the AIT-UNEP Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific (RRC.AP) based in Bangkok, Thailand.
