Abstract: It is important to find out the level of commitment in Kiribati to education for sustainability (EFS) in the formal school system - its curriculum and syllabus. Also important is the involvement and engagement of local communities for Indigenous Knowledge (IK) practices in both urban and rural areas since the initiation of the Decade for Education and Sustainable Development (DESD). This is of great importance to Kiribati and the wider Pacific community in the Pacific region in providing possible solutions because major issues of ‘sustainability’ are also experienced within a period of recognised climate change.
