2019 Training Programme
The 4th Training Programme on Regional Ocean Governance for the Southeast Asian Seas and the Indian Ocean was again successfully delivered in Hua Hin District, Prachub Khiri Khan Province in Thailand from 30 June to 27 July. IOI Thailand’s programme theme is based on an integrated ocean governance approach following the principles established in UNCLOS. The programme therefore focuses on an integrated, interdisciplinary, inter-regional and cross-cultural approach. It applies legal, ethical, environmental and economic principles with the support of science and technology aimed at realistic ocean management and sustainable development.
The training programme was designed to benefit policymakers and mid-career professionals having coastal or marine related functions or interests. For this training, many participants were government officials and the training helped widen their perspective and understanding of ocean governance.
13 participants from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds were selected to attend this event. Six participants came from South and Southeast Asia, from Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Vietnam, with the remainder from Thailand. Local and international experts and practitioners delivered lectures, conducted classroom exercises and interactive discussions. Among the practical components that complimented the classroom discussions were conflict management exercises, a SWOT analysis, a round-table discussion and a coastal land use matrix exercise.
A report of the course is given in the 04/19 edition of the IOInforma which is available for download from Documents & Publications IOInforma News Bulletin section (0419 issue).
