What is a Regional Center of Expertise? In 2003, the United Nations University’s Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) launched its ESD project. This program designs and implements research and development activities through a multi-stakeholder global network of Regional Centers of Expertise (RCEs).
