Blue Training Courses – four open source trainings focusing on marine and coastal ecosystems

Climate change is challenging coastal and marine ecosystems. To strengthen capacities among decision-makers, the Blue Solutions Initiative developed four modular training courses – the Blue Training Courses – focusing on climate change adaptation, ecosystem services, conservation finance and marine spatial planning:

  • Blue Climate Change and Adaptation (CCA, 3-5 training days) introduces the theory and practical starting points for climate change adaptation in coastal and marine areas. This tailor-made training course enhances capacities among development actors and supporting institutions in successfully taking action on blue climate change adaptation.
  • Blue Integrating Ecosystem Services (3-5 training days) focuses on the linkages between ecosystem services and development objectives and conveys the theoretical background of and practical steps for integrating ecosystem services (IES) into marine and coastal planning. It introduces tools and methods for assessing and valuing ecosystem services, main policy options and instruments to capture ecosystem services-related risks and opportunities as well as entry points for decision-making.
  • The Blue Conservation Finance course (1-2 days) introduces opportunities and approaches for financing marine conservation, enabling factors for the development of conservation finance mechanisms, and key steps for their establishment. Examples of the implementation of financing mechanisms in the marine and coastal realm are featured in this publication.
  • The Blue Planning in Practice (BPiP, 5 training days)

All training materials are opem source and available online. Please see further details here.
