Call for Applications for “Quantification and Valuation of Marine and Coastal Ecosystem Services” Training Workshop

ERACOMA, in collaboration with the South Eastern Kenya University, Machakos University, the University of Nairobi, Kenya Wildlife Services, Cambridge University (UK) and University of Algarve (Portugal) are organizing a Regional Training Workshop on “Quantification and Valuation of Marine and Coastal Ecosystem Services”, that will be held in Mombasa, Kenya from 27th May 2019 to 1st June 2019. The training course is sponsored by WIOMSA, through its Marine and Coastal Science for Management (MASMA) Programme.

This training aims to equip coastal and marine resource managers, technical officers and practitioners in the WIO region with requisite knowledge and skills to quantify and value ecosystem services at their priority sites. It will also help the coastal and marine resource managers, technical officers and practitioners understand who gains and who loses from management decisions as flows of ecosystem services change by looking at all values of the environment– both market and non-market.

If you would like to apply for this training workshop, please submit a completed form at the latest on 15th March 2019 via email to Margaret Owuor and Cornelius Okello (eracoma.consultants@gmail.com), with a copy to WIOMSA (secretary@wiomsa.org).
