Capacity development is a key factor for supporting ownership and action in the member states of the Convention on Biological Diversity towards a healthy ocean and prosperous seas that are managed sustainably. The Blue Solutions initiative has therefore developed four modular and highly interactive marine training courses:
Enabling ecosystem-based marine and coastal planning and management
Integrating Ecosystem Services into Marine and Coastal Development Planning
Climate Change Adaptation in Marine and Coastal Areas
Financing Sustainable Management of Marine and Coastal Biodiversity
The training courses worldwide
The training courses have been conducted in a number of countries in Africa, Latin America and South-East Asia, both at the national and the regional level. More than 20 experienced trainers with different professional, technical and cultural backgrounds are part of the trainer pool and available for delivering the courses.
