New Reef Resilience Free Online Course

New Reef Resilience Free Online Course


ConservationTraining.org
is offering a new innovate training program on Reef Resilience to
provide coral reef managers, trainers, and policymakers guidance on
building resilience to climate change into the design of Marine
Protected Areas (MPAs) and daily management activities.


The course incorporates the new science, lessons learned, case studies,
and practices that have been included in the on-line Reef Resilience
toolkit and is designed to accelerate the knowledge and facilitate
access to essential information and tools needed to incorporate
resilience principles into management strategies. While the focus of
this course is on the problem of coral bleaching and actions that
managers can take to address this problem, specifically in the context
of marine protected areas, the recommendations and tools can also be
applied to most threats that coral reefs face today. The program
includes key aspects such as:
  • An introduction to mass
    coral bleaching and the ecological and social impacts
  • Description of the four main
    principles of resilience and how to identify factors of resilience
  • Recommendations on the
    design and management of resilient MPAs

This course is free and open to anyone interested in learning about
Reef Resilience.
