2012 Asia-Pacific Leadership Programme

The Asia-Pacific Leadership Programme on Environment for Sustainable Development was jointly hosted by UNEP –Tongji IESD (Institute of Environment for Sustainable Development) as a means to provide training for emerging leaders from various backgrounds. 

Its objectives are: 
 ·         To improve the all-round thinking and decision-making abilities of the young and emerging leaders in governmental organizations, NGOs, and private enterprises in the Asia-Pacific Region.

The Asia-Pacific areas have witnessed the rapid expansion of   Leadership Programme’s influence through its development from 2004 to 2011.
