Namibia has become the first country in the SADC region to have a stand-alone National Environmental Education (EE) and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Policy. The development of the policy was a long time collaboration between government ministries and civil society. UNESCO through the Sustainability Starts with Teachers programme also supported the process.


The vision of the national EE/ESD Policy is an “educated and empowered Namibia with environmentally literate people taking responsibility and action for a sustainable future”.


The policy is designed to support EE and ESD in formal, non-formal and informal education processes across all sectors of the Namibian society including higher education, teacher education, technical and vocational education institutions, and general education. It gives Namibia the much-needed foundation to work towards ESD for 2030 and the sustainable development goals (SDGs).
