CEMASTEA as an International institution works with several organisations and institutions in the implementation of its activities. From inception, most of the partnerships and linkages were coordinated directly from the Director’s office. In 2012, the Director transfered the function to the Training and Academic Affairs Department as External Linkages and Collaborations. The growth   in coverage, scope and stature of partnerships and linkages activities made CEMASTEA management to separate this function from Training and Academic Affairs Department in October 2014.
