This learning exchange consisted of two parts: A pre-International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) workshop with 24 participants that focused on solving problems around MPA network design and implementation and a half-day symposium with 120 attendees. This symposium included a presentation of resilience science and application of advances to management decisions.
The second in a series of Training of Trainers (TOT) workshops included 17 managers from 12 countries and territories in the Western Pacific islands. This two-part course consisted of an intensive, four-month online course that was mentored by global and regional experts on various course topics. Participants had weekly assignments and engaged in virtual discussions to further enhance their learning experience. This was followed by a week-long, in-person workshop to build skills in facilitation, communication, and resilient marine protected area design. Participants left the workshop with specific training action plans.
