This report summarizes the findings of a study which determined the state of the art of graduate and post-graduate environmental education (EE) and training programs for professionals in and for Third World countries (focusing on the activities and policies of United Nations development organizations, bilateral activities and policies of western aid agencies engaged in EE education and training in developing countries, and the activities and policies of international development banks). The study also examined the institutions in the member countries of the European Commission (and selected other countries) offering advanced training and education for professionals in this field, indicating existing education/training programs and discussing target groups, manpower requirements, goals of EE and training, and other areas. Various policy recommendations for the Committee of International Development Institutions on the Environment (CIDIE) membership concerning future policies of EE and training for environmentally sound development planning in developing countries are included. Two of the high priority recommendations are the dissemination of environmental information to high level politicians and policy advisors from developing countries and the establishment of a fund for model education and training programs. A nine-page bibliography concludes the report. (JN)
