PERSGA's Training Programme








The implementation of PERSGA's training activities is aligned with the Jeddah Convention (1982), Article XIX (g), as well as the 1982 Action Plan, Part II, Articles 19 and 20.



Objectives—Investing in Human Capital:

Management of marine and coastal environments is a multidisciplinary task that requires technical, communication and consultation skills as well as strategic planning, risk management and information management capabilities. Therefore, capacity-building of human resources is fundamental for any successful management programme. The Jeddah Convention (1982) and its Action Plan calls for the need to develop an integrated management approach to the use of marine and coastal areas and the importance of workshops and seminars in establishing principles and guidelines for management plans.
PERSGA programmes are geared towards improving the participation and performance of all stakeholders in the region in order to achieve the optimum goals of the Jeddah convention (1982). Training creates an informed and capable stakeholder base that is best able to fulfil conservation requirements.

  2. Undertake capacity building and training especially designed to support the implementation of different activities of this Framework.
