How we do it?

            Each training program is designed using the Integrated Ecosystems Approach, wherein a common resource base such as a bay, gulf, watershed, or declared protected area is considered, and, as far as practicable, training participants come from one contiguous area. The Institute will endeavor to design its projects towards the attainment of specific and measurable impacts on the common resource as a result of the integrated action plan output of the participants.

            The specific and measurable impacts identified in the action plans are assessed after a period of six months to one year from the conduct of training through a monitoring and evaluation activity. The impact of the training is monitored, not only on the participant, but on the identified common resource base as well.
