From 29 July to 11 August 2017, the Project organized a training course "Wetland conservation policy" for the counterparts.
In total eight counterparts of General Directorate of Ecosystems and Wildlife, General Directorate of Evaluation and Compliance, General Direction of the Environmental Observatory, General Direction of Citizen Attention and Municipalities participated in the training. They learned the following topics: administration of wetland management at the central and regional level in Japan, coordination among the central, regional, and local level, participatory management of wetland with wise use, management of the conservation area, etc. which were selected by the counterparts and the Japanese experts considering the current issues in wetland management in El Salvador.
In the end of the training course, as a wrap up of the learnings, the participants presented their action plans prepared by group work based on their learnings about the good practice in Japan, which can be applied in El Salvador for the solution of their issues.
After returning to El Salvador, the participants made a presentation in MARN to share their learnings and experience, and the action plans with their colleagues.
After this presentation, the Project started to support the counterparts implement some of their action plan.
