The Nature Conservancy, in partnership with CORDIO and NOAA and with the support of IUCN and the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, is pleased to offer a workshop for coral reef managers. We will accept coral reef managers from the countries of Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, South Africa, India, Egypt, Sudan, Eretria, Djibouti, Madagascar, Seychelles, and Mauritius.

Participants will learn about building resilience into reef management and the tools available for addressing the impacts of climate change. The meeting will bring together marine managers/trainers to learn and share ideas that will lead to more effective long-term coral reef management. The workshop is designed to provide an atmosphere of exchange and creative problem solving so that participants leave with a specific training plan for their locale. Resources recently developed through major international collaborations will be highlighted and distributed to participants (e.g., Resilience Toolkit, Reef Managers Guide to Bleaching, etc.). The workshop will be facilitated by regional and global experts in coral reef management.

The one-week workshop will be held in Zanzibar, Tanzania, in early June 2013. (Dates TBD.) 

The application is due on December 14th, 2012.
