Our fourth batch of the ICZMP training at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IIT) began on November 20th and concluded on November 27th 2014. This is yet another achievement for the ICZMP in terms of capacity building of officials and persons concerned with coastal zone management in Gujarat.
The ICZMP trainings adopt an integrated approach in the sense that, the training modules cover a variety of relevant topics integral to efficient coastal zone management. On the other hand, participants belonging to different departments and disciplines such as ecology, environment management, public services, maritime board among others converge on a common platform to learn about effective coastal zone management.
This amalgamation of different perspectives and voices from the realms of science and management enriched the quality of the workshop, it gives officials from various departments with knowledge and skills on subjects beyond their framework of expertise but, relevant to overall coastal zone management.
