Strathmore University is a chartered university based in Nairobi, Kenya. Strathmore University launched the Center for Sustainability Leadership, together with its pioneering program African Sustainability Leadership Program the first of its kind in Eastern Africa, in 2016. The Strathmore Centre for Sustainability Leadership will concentrate on research, capacity building, entrepreneurship, policy, governance and stakeholder dialogue on sustainable development.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) also approved Strathmore University’s proposal to set up a UNESCO Chair for Climate Change Resilience and Sustainability. Slated to last five renewable years, the chair will encompass the disciplines of climate change adaptation and mitigation, access to electricity, energy efficiency, education of youth and women, and public policy.
