The Blue Mountains World Heritage Institute is offering a 6-day training program in the management of natural resources, particularly in the context of protected areas in the Asia-Pacific region.
Adaptive Management for Protected Area Conservation in the Asia-Pacific is offered from November 5 to November 10, 2018 as part of the Protected Areas Learning and Research Collaboration and in partnership with the Wildlife Institute of India (a UNESCO Category 2 training centre).
The course will explore the theory and practice of adaptive management using the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area as a case study.
Participants will work in small teams to learn about adaptive planning, monitoring and management, and how to integrate monitoring data into decision-making.
Management issues will be explored to reveal underlying problems, to find ways of working with complex and seemingly intractable issues such as climate change.
Date: November 5-10, 2018. Location: Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Australia
Cost: AUD$3,000 (excl GST) including 7 nights accommodation, all meals, local transport & course materials.
