Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganising a conference, workshop, seminar or course


    The aim of the training was to provide information about the IMET tool, how it can be used for decision making in the management of a protected area, what type of information it can provide, etc. to conduct a practical example, as well as to inform participants on the skills required to do an IMET assessment at site or network level. This training included not only representatives from the public administrations, but also academics, NGOs, private sector and some independent consultants The information provided in this training paved way for national stakeholders to determine whether or not they would like further coaching in order to adopt the IMET tool in their various institutions and roll out the IMET
    assessments across their protected and conserved area network.
    In total, 40 participants from 23 countries participated in the training.
    To speed up understanding and handling of IMET in a limited timeframe, the trainers and the facilitator chose training techniques that promote collaborative learning, direct exploration of the tool, and practical case studies.
