Strategic and inclusive partnership is a fundamental component to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
SEI Asia, with support from the Swedish government (SIDA), launched the Strategic Collaborative Fund Phase 2 (SCF2) programme in 2018 to enhance the current 2030 Agenda efforts in Asia and the Pacific. SCF2 aims to foster regional cooperation and policy dialogue for sustainable development and environmental sustainability, through capacity building, knowledge sharing and increased collaboration.

Human rights and gender equality are central to SCF2, as it champions regional and inter-regional collaboration for transboundary environmental policy development.
These open online courses on gender equality and rights-based approaches aim to enhance institutional capacity and knowledge of regional partners. The courses seek to encourage gender, human rights and poverty reduction-centric policies on environmental and climate change issues and the SDGs.

Human rights education and training are of fundamental importance in contributing to the promotion, protection and effective realisation of all human rights. RWI, in collaboration with SEI Asia, developed the human rights course to support the development of capacity of practitioners to plan, implement and deliver environmental sustainability initiatives with human rights at the centre.
