The Centre for Environment and Development for the Arab Region and Europe (CEDARE)
Tuesday 15 April 2003

The Centre for Environment and Development for the Arab Region and Europe (CEDARE) was established on the basis of a joint commitment by the three principal sponsors, namely the Government of Egypt (GOE), the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development (AFESD) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The Conference of the Arab Ministers for Environmental Affairs adopted the ’Damascus Convention on CEDARE’ at its 3rd session, held in Damascus in December 1991. This convention became the primary legal instrument enabling the creation of the Centre, based on which an agreement with the Host Government (GOE) was signed and ratified by the Egyptian Parliament on 21 April 1992.

In January 1993, CEDARE’s medium-term strategy and its first programme of work and budget (PWB) for 1993-1994 were approved by the sponsors. CEDARE thus became operational as of the beginning of 1993.

CEDARE’s main mission is :
-  Capacity building of its member countries, promoting skills in environmental management, transfer of technologies, environmental education, and development of environmental policies.
-  Assist member countries to achieve some of their important national and regional priority goals of sustainable development, particularly in the management of freshwater resources; land resources development and urbanization and human settlements. Facilitate inter-country cooperation and exchange of information and experience Thus, the main function of CEDARE is that of an "enabling" agent in support of sustainable development initiatives at national, sub-regional and regional levels, stimulating the implementation of international conventions and agreements in the region.
