Planning and adaptive management for protected areas using the Open Standards
Registrations are open for a five-day Open Standards / Healthy Country Planning workshop in the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. Using a well-proven adult learning approach, this intensive live-in course will give people a good understanding of how these tools can be directly used in their own work.
The course is delivered under the Protected Areas Learning and Research Collaboration jointly by the Blue Mountains World Heritage Institute and Conservation Management.
When and where: June 26-30, 2017 in Katoomba, Australia.
Introduce the concepts, steps and structures of the Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation by using the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area – a fascinating protected area management challenge with multiple interacting threats and opportunities as a case study to directly demonstrate its application.
Students will work in small teams to pursue specific threads through the en re adaptive planning and management loop and learn how to integrate these threads into a powerful, ongoing, planning and management framework.
