International Training of Trainers on Wetland Management
The International Training of Trainers on Wetland Management begins this week in Wageningen, Netherlands. The course is a development based on a change of strategy for the decade-old Dutch RIZA International Course on Wetland Management (ICWM). Instead of organising an international wetland management course in the Netherlands, RIZA and its partners (Wetland Advisory and Training Centre (WATC) and the International Agricultural Centre (IAC) wished to stimulate the development of similar courses in the different regions in the world such as the International Course on African Wetland Management in Naivasha, Kenya. The current course has been developed to support such regional capacity building initiatives and will build on the experience of the participants of the previous courses.
