Story from Irina Montenegro, WWF Chile
In August 2017, 16 representatives from 11 government institutions participated in the first pilot course of the Regional School of Managers of Marine Protected Areas. During the course, participants learned about planning and evaluation tools for managing Marine Protected Areas in Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay, and learned how to apply elements of the Open Standards to project design.
This initiative was articulated by the Forum for the Conservation of the Patagonian Sea and Areas of Influence. The course was developed by the Wildlife Conservation Society of Chile, WWF Chile, and the Fundación Vida Silvestre Argentina and convened by the National Parks of Argentina, the Ministry of the Environment of Chile, and the Ministry of Housing, Territorial Planning and Environment of Uruguay.
