Summary

An environmental education program, no matter how well-designed, won't help improve environmental quality in a country if effective materials are not available, if teachers are not trained or motivated to use the materials, if funding does not exist to reproduce and distribute materials, and if the community, Ministry, and others have not participated in the process. To ensure continued program support, it's important to map out a strategy before you begin and get the necessary support up front.
