Report on the 6th Training Course for ICBR Managers (Jeju, October 2018)

ImatgeThe 6th UNESCO Training Course for Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserve Managers took place on Jeju Island, the Republic of Korea from October 1st to 3rd, 2018. The training course was organized by UNESCO MAB and Jeju Special Self-Governing Province and convened by Jeju Secretariat of WNICBR.

The main target of this program is the BR managers of the ODA (Official Development Assistance) countries and newly designated sites and the program fully supports the entire educational expenses.

UNESCO MAB and Jeju Secretariat had received and reviewed approximately 30 application forms this year, but ,unfortunately, because of a limited budget, we had to apply 'priorities to be considered for the selection process.'

A total of 11 participants were chosen and the participating BRs to the 6th training course include Peninsula de Guanahacabibes (Cuba), Wakatobi (Indonesia), Quirimbas (Mozambique), St. Mary’s (St. Kitts and Nevis), Nanji Islands (China), Sahamalaza-Iles Radama (Madagascar), the Commander Islands (Russia), Socotra Island (Yemen), Cape West Coast (South Africa), Nam Ha NBCA (Laos) and Palawan (the Philippines).

This Educational program was progressed for three days by lectures, presentations and field trip around Jeju Island Biosphere Reserve. For the first time, a workshop session was held to discuss more practical topics relevant to the management including tourism, education, current initiatives and future projects.

The Proceeding Book, compiling presentations made at the training program is scheduled to be published by the end of this year and you can check and download all relevant information from the websites of UNESCO MAB and two technical secretariats; Jeju and Menorca.
