Story from Irina Montenegro, WWF-Chile.
During November 2016, WWF-Chile hosted a basic training on Program and Project Management Standards (a WWF adaptation of the Open Standards) for 14 representatives from seven WWF offices in Latin America and an associated NGO, Fundación Vida Silvestre-Argentina. This workshop strengthened the capacity of new and established staff from Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Guatemala, Chile, and Paraguay. Training participants got familiar with the conservation project cycle and identified the key strengths and opportunities of adaptive management and its use on daily work.
This workshop was developed as part of the LAC Secretariat Initiative to promote a strategic planning approach for the region and the CCNet plan to strengthen adaptive management in Latin America.
