11th International Training Course on Mangrove Biodiversity and Ecosystems
Centre of Advanced Studies in Marine Biology Annamalai University, India (5-19th October 2011)
(DEADLINE 5th August)
BACKGROUND: Coastal ecosystems (e.g., coral reefs, mangroves, and wetlands) are some of the world’s richest storehouses of biological diversity and primary productivity. It is estimated that about half the world’s coastal ecosystems face a significant risk of degradation from human activities, those in South and Southeast Asian perhaps among the most threatened.
This course focuses on mangrove ecosystems with particular emphasis on the methodology for assessing, monitoring and conserving biodiversity. It is taught by a multidisciplinary team of lecturers and through hands-on involvement of the participants.
OBJECTIVES: Primarily to build the capacity of professionals and institutions in developing countries to undertake monitoring, research and conservation of critical ecosystems within mangrove forests. This is achieved through training of young professionals in the scientific methodology and description of latest research work on related subjects. A secondary objective is to promote and encourage development of a network of professionals from developing countries working in this field.
The course has also been developed as an open course ware as part of an open learning initiative with UNU, Tokyo and is available at: http://ocw.unu.edu/
Further information can be found in a background Paper Training and Capacity Building for Managing Our Mangroves Resources – UNU’s Role to Meet Regional Challenges (pdf 23.1KB).
