IAAF Nairobi Regional Development Centre was the first RDC to be opened by IAAF in 1987. Since that time it has completed quite a number of activities, i.e.:
Seminars and Courses on different topics, attended by thousands of representatives from 22 countries English Speaking in Africa and Europe, Malta is an occasional participant on recommendations and direction of IAAF.
Over the last few years the centre has provided Africa with training camps and the opportunity to take part in the international competitions for young athletes under Joint Sports Project.
Many books and manuals of IAAF, as well as methodological materials have been issued through the Centre over this period.
IAAF adopted the “World Athletic Plan”, which defined main trends of development of our sports for the coming decade. We at the RDC together with the National Member Federations will play a prominent role in the realization of this Plan.
