Acknowledged by the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability Tokyo, Japan on September 2018, the Regional Centre of Expertise Kuching (RCE Kuching) was established to create and promote sustainable-literate communities in Sarawak’s capital City. As the first RCE in East Malaysia and the fourth in the country, its focus area and projects are concentrated in and around the main water source for Kuching – Sarawak River Kiri.

RCE Kuching aims to engage with all sectors in society, especially youth to raise the sustainability literacy of the rural and urban communities of Kuching. This constitutes the urban and rural communities spread around the Sarawak River, which is the main source of water to Kuching city and its suburbs.

Kuching is one of the twelve administrative divisions of Sarawak in Borneo. It is the most populous division of Sarawak comprising the districts of Kuching, Lundu and Bau with an area of around 430 sq km. Kuching is also the capital of Sarawak and occupies both banks of the Sarawak River.
