Home About paes Programs Projects News and Events Publications Contacts

PAES is a non-governmental organization established to promote environmentally and socially sustainable development in Africa based on sound science and best practices. With environmental aspects of sustainable development as its domain, PAES focuses on policy development and bridging gaps between national environmental policies and community level actions as well as between regional and global processes.

PAES took its name from a conviction that the goals of sustainable development can be achieved fundamentally through forging partnerships and building consensus among governments, NGOs, research, academic and private sector institutions.

PAES promotes partnerships as a vital means for generating common understanding, sharing of knowledge, information, finance, and avoiding duplication of effort. In pursuing its goals, PAES operates in close collaboration with other NGOs and makes sure that programmatic activities are complementary.
