Program Volume 2 Cane Toad Inquiry Report 85 Inability to access programs Low Strategy will allow and plan for low literacy and comprehension levels where found Program Management ORGANIZATIONAL CAPABILITY/PAST PERFORMANCE Proponent The Centre for Environment Education-Australia was incorporated as a not for profit association in Sydney in July 2001. It represents 18 years of experience, expertise and information resources in awareness building, education, communication and community initiatives. Its authority in the environmental field stems from its parent body, Centre for Environment Education in India (est. 1984) which founded the South and South East Asian Network for Environmental Education (SASEANEE) in 1992. CEE Australia Incorporated is dedicated to raising awareness and supporting an informed and scientifically credible approach to environment and development issues in Australia and the Asia Pacific region. To this end, CEE Australia will develop and implement innovative educational programs based on scientific research, traditional knowledge and international best practice. Building on the strengths of its parent body, CEE- India, CEE-Australia is an autonomous entity with a management committee of specialists in environment education, conservation biology, communication, economics and finance. Additionally, membership by invitation provides access to a resource pool of expertise in a wide range of inter-related and relevant fields. CEE, with its headquarters in Ahmedabad, India, has offices in the Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western zones of the country and its Asia-Pacific office in Sydney, Australia. CEE is the secretariat of the South and Southeast Asia Network for Environmental Education (SASEANEE), a joint program with IUCN, and currently runs a three-month certificate training program in Environmental Education for in-service professionals from the Asia-Pacific region in collaboration with IUCN and WWF-International. CEE is also the focal point for the South Asia Co-operative Environment Program (SACEP) and the national host agency for the GEF small grants program in India. CEE is the regional chair of the IUCNs education commission and is a member of the World Commission on Protected Areas. CEE received Indias highest award for the year 1997 in recognition of the quality and impact of its contribution in the field of environmental education. CEE brings experience and expertise in the field of conservation education in diverse and challenging contexts. CEE has an impressive legacy of developing effective materials, methods and strategies, and managing conservation education, awareness, training, livelihood support and communication programs for communities living in and around protected areas in rural, remote and fringe urban regions of India. This experience is especially relevant to the proposed Australian program, which will operate among multilingual, tribal, hunter gatherer societies whose cultures and socio-economic conditions reflect many characteristics in common with India. Virtually all components of the proposed Australian program are already ongoing activities in India. Since 1985, CEE has been conducting annual training programs in environmental journalism, and has been organising and facilitating seminars and workshops at various levels on issues related to environment and development.
