Building Capacity for Mainstreaming Fisheries Co-management in Indonesia

The FishCode Custom Training Courses (CTC) Project seeks to contribute to the enhancement of human capacity by supporting the development and delivery of well-targeted customised courses in selected countries. The Project was initiated at the end of 2005 with financial support from the Icelandic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and operates in close collaboration with the United Nations University’s Fisheries Training Programme (UNU/FTP).

The CTC Project has two major objectives:
  1. Design and delivery of short courses on fisheries and aquaculture;
  2. Enhanced fisheries training capacity within the beneficiary countries.
Courses in fisheries and aquaculture

Activities thus involve both direct training for fisheries practitioners and 'training of trainers' to develop skill sets in-country for identifying training needs, designing short-courses, searching for and adapting appropriate source materials for courses, and course organization and deliver.

Courses in fisheries and aquaculture
Once a particular course has been developed and delivered, the Project will seek to draw from it a package of resource materials that may be used in formulating similar courses elsewhere.
