Abstract: Background environmental challenges overwhelm the global community. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to explore how the tools used by NGOs can be applied to environmental security and sustainable development in Ethiopia. It solves the problem of how environmental education instills knowledge, skills, awareness and attitude into stakeholders in the environment. Recent discussions on the 2020 African Union summit, the 2063 Africa agenda, the 2020 Davos world economic forum, the 2030 United Nations agenda and Ethiopia s green economy strategy strongly seek to strengthen environmental education as a tool for global and local environmental and development sustainability. Here, the study collected some evidence from environmenta programs of a nongovernmental organization in Ethiopia. The study focused on a nonformal environmental education, based on the frameworks of the agreements and declarations where Ethiopia is a contracting party. The frameworks are guiding concepts to investigate the phenomenon. Methods. The study used a thematic analysis based on empirical studies. Specifically, empirical studies from primary and secondary sources on the implementation of environment and forest development programs of the organization are crucial to providing a concrete presentation. Results. Empirical pieces of evidence show that the organization plans, projects, and performance reports were found inconsistent with the frameworks of international agreements and national policy. The empirical study also shows that environmental education is not well considered and institutionalized in the organization's project planning. Environmental education strategies are not explicitly visible while planning the projects. Moreover, in some implementation strategies of the organization, there was inconsistency in using environmental education as a strategic instrument to improve environmental security and quality. Conclusion. The organization's environmental performance was deep-rooted to improve the status quo in the living community. However, the utilization of environmental education was discovered to be minimal. Thus, stakeholders and the organization take the advice to integrate into the entire cycle of the project.
