has 21 specialist institutions scattered throughout the region
and closely linked to the educational environment of the country,
which hosts them. These Centres provide regional leadership
in the development of education, science and cultural strategies.
The SEAMEO Centres are structured in three clusters: learning,
health and agriculture/natural resources/environment.
Although their primary focus is on training educational administrators
from Member Countries, each Centre has a research, consultancy
and training capacity that far exceeds this primary mandate. Each Centre has its own Governing Board with a representative
from each Member Country.
The SEAMEO Directory
was published for 1981/1982 up to 1998/1999. For 2002 the
Directory was combined with the Calendar. Beginning
2001, the SEAMEO Directory was published annually. The printed
version are distributed, gratis. The
list of the SEAMEO Directory is arranged in reverse chronological order.
