It discusses region’s challenges both in terms of statistical development and in use of environment assets. Special attention is drawn to significant rates of growth in inefficacies and wastages, which point to developing better physical infrastructure and management practices. The study also highlights important capacity development needs for the regional NSOs, especially in relation to environment accounts which needs urgency attention.
