Background of the Training Program
The technical assistance support contract for the Integrated Protected Area Co-Management (IPAC) project was awarded to International Resources Group (IRG) for the period of June 5, 2008 to June 4, 2013 by USAID/Bangladesh.
The IPAC project aims to ensure sustainable natural resource management and preserve natural capital of Bangladesh through strengthening environmental governance and biodiversity conservation in combination with support for public-private partnerships and sustainable economic growth.
In this context, IPAC is working with Jahangirnagar University (JU) and Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) to introduce a series of certificate courses on Applied Conservation Biology and Co-Management which will promote efficient co-management of Protected Areas (PAs) and alternative income generation activities in these protected forests and wetland landscapes for the conservation of biodiversity and improved socio-economic well-being of local communities.
The Applied Conservation Biology and Co-Management certificate course will aim to enable the participants from government technical agencies and non-governmental organizations to collaborate more effectively in the management of PAs, Wetlands and Ecologically Critical Areas (ECAs) in ways that both conserve biodiversity and promote more sustainable and secure economic growth that directly benefits local communities.
