This first training workshop was very well received and has created a big interest in further training activities within different institutions in Myanmar. A second 2-day Blue Planning in Practice training was already held from 8th to 9th February 2018 at the Central Forestry Development Training Center (CFDTC). 20 Forest Rangers from five coastal regions all over Myanmar participated in the training.
During November 27 – December 1, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), in collaboration with the Blue Solutions Initiative, conducted a training on marine spatial planning to 20 representatives of Myanmar’s inter-agency National Coastal Resource Management Committee (NCRMC). The training workshop introduced participants to key blue planning concepts through case studies, presentations, discussions, and participatory exercises.
