The program will also seek core funding from international and regional organisations to cover costs of managing and administration where needed. Sponsorship is feasible once the component activities are established and their practical value demonstrated. Resource Leveraging The project leverages the networks, expertise and experience of CEE in India and Australia. CEE has the ability to take the lessons of this proposed program to 32 nations in the Asia Pacific region through its organisational networks - for example, as the national co-ordinator of GEF small grants program and its memberships in the IUCN, Asia Pacific Forum of Environmental Journalists, TVE resource networks, and its various collaborative projects with various international organisations. CEE brings its unique expertise and experience in field projects, including its regional training programs in environment education and communications.
