26 Jan Training of Trainers on the Role of Marine Protected Area and Sustainable Fisheries
CTC conducted a training of trainers in Denpasar from January 23 – 27, 2017 on the role of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and Sustainable Fisheries. The training was attended by 20 participants from the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (Balai Pendidikan Pelatihan Perikanan – BP3) from Medan, Tegal, Banyuwangi, Bitung, and Ambon and officers from Central Java, West Kalimantan, North Sulawesi, and Bali.
The training curriculum is designed especially for fisheries extension officers so that they can assist MPA managers in doing outreach functions in the community. As this was a training of trainers, the participants learned how to conduct similar trainings, as well as how develop and prepare training materials. The participants also visited Nusa Penida Marine Protected Area (MPA) to see first hand how MPAs and sustainable fisheries are effectively managed.
“My background and experience in conservation field training does not stem from a deep knowledge, so I am very interested in this training. After this training, I have the capacity, I have a method and approach that is better in carrying out my duties as an educator. This training is very helpful to support my work doing outreach to the community,” said Hardiyono, one of the participants from Kebumen, Central Java. Hardiyono was also very happy with how the training was conducted “I will tell my colleagues that the training conducted by the CTC is very good. CTC is quite professional in these trainings. I would recommend these trainings by CTC.” (Photos by Marcel Bittner and Suarbawa Malimali)
