MedWetCoast Training Course
Wetland training course at Azraq Oasis, Jordan, March 2002
March 2002, by Web Team

On 2nd to 7th March, Azraq Oasis Ramsar site (Jordan) served as a case study for a 6-day Training Course on Management Planning organized by the regional facilitation of the project.

The course gathered about 30 participants from Albania, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, Tunisia, from both governments and NGOs. The course will enable participants to design management plans for 15 wetland and coastal sites (some of them Ramsar sites), as part of the 2nd phase of the MedWetCoast project.

The course was organised in partnership by the Royal Society for Nature Conservation of Jordan, ATEN (the French training organisation for protected areas staff), and Tour du Valat Biological Station. Draft management plans were designed by the participants for Azraq using existing baseline data, field visits, and meetings with local stakeholders.

The efforts made by RSCN to save as much as possible of the Oasis despite the tremendous local pressure on water resources was highly appreciated, as well as its professionalism in training, based upon many years of collaboration in the Middle East.
