Embarking on the Decade for Sustainable Development: A Swaziland View
Allen, Irma
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v4 n3 p283-287 2005
Tucked between South Africa and Mozambique, and usually "gowned" in green, Swaziland is one of the smallest countries in Africa, but it has great variation in landscape, geology, and climate. It also has great diversity of fauna and flora. In recognition of the importance that sound environmental management plays in the course of Swaziland's development, and cognizant of the country's commitment to implement international Conventions and agreements, the government has been following a steady course towards improved environmental management beginning with the establishment of the Swaziland Environment Authority (SEA). This article discusses the important role SEA has to play in the Decade for Education for Sustainable Development (DESD). It mentions the good opportunities in Swaziland for deriving maximum benefits from the DESD, and the challenges the country will face in its undertaking of the DESD.
