Promoting environmental protection has become a key tool to achieving
sustainable development. At the Local, National, Regional and
International levels, there is a consensus that adequate information,
knowledge and skills are required to assure this protection and the
sustainability of the environment. That is why there is need to enhance
knowledge on key concepts in the environmental protection and sustenance
field so as to equip professionals with the overall comprehension and an
action-oriented approach towards the achievement of not only project goals
but also of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
For 2016, the Environmental Law Research Institute (ELRI) research and
capacity unit has been revamped to proffer short term weekend courses that
cover the areas of environmental democracy and management. These emerging
courses are highlighted on ELRI’s website (under its training programmes)
and social media channels (Facebook and Twitter).
In the light of the above, ELRI is glad to offer short term weekend
courses on the following:
