The Training of Trainers Workshop (TOT) is designed to build capacity among reef managers to better address the impacts of global climate change and other stressors at local scales, with an emphasis on building resilience into daily management activities and the design of marine protected areas. The workshop is designed to train participants so that they can provide support and information to other coral reef managers working within their region that act as critical “nodes” within the Reef Resilience Network, enhancing linkages among managers within the region.
A TOT workshop has three main components:
These trainings were made possible by the generous support of the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
The training curriculum for the Training of Trainers is currently under revision and a new version will be launched in December 2014. Coral reef managers and practitioners from the region where the workshop is hosted are eligible to participate. Participants are selected through a competitive application process. Individuals are often selected in pairs from each attending country so that they can work together after the workshop to support projects in their area.
