2018 Training Programme

 

The sixth consecutive course focussing on Caspian Sea issues came to a fruitful comp letion in early March. This course is part of the IOI’s capacity building programmes on ocean governance and is offered with co-founding partner the State Enterprise on Caspian Sea Issues at the President of Turkmenistan (SECS).

 

The course was formally launched by IOI HQ Managing Director Antonella Vassallo and by SECS Chairman Myrat Atajanov on the 5th of March alongside Iouri Oliounine, Director of the Training Programme, who further introduced the participants to the concepts and structure of the course.

 

This year, 21 participants from the countries surrounding the Caspian Sea (Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, IR Iran and Russia) attended the course. The diverse experience in issues of Caspian Sea management, research and policy of the participants further enriched the project work undertaken during the course.

 

Detailed information about the course was given in the latest edition of the IOInforma 02/18 available for download from the Archives Section (0218 issue).
