Essential EAFM - Training Courses to Date

Progress with E-EAFM training across South Asia, South East Asia and Latin America and the Caribean region.

The E-EAFM consortium successfully piloted the E-EAFM training in June 2013 at Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Between 2013 and 2016, the E-EAFM consortium carried out almost 50 courses in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Myanmar, Lao PDR, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hawaii. Over 1000 participants took part, mostly staff from governments of participating countries. Since 2017, the E-EAFM consortium has carried out courses in Mexico and Costa Rica, supporting participants from six Latin America and Caribbean countries. Many participating government officials, NGO staff and representatives of fisher associations continue to take part in the E-EAFM training and associated Training of Trainers.  

For an indicative list of courses and participating agencies see below.

Since 2016 more agencies are running this training course. We try to keep updated figures so would welcome news about recently completed E-EAFM courses and training of trainers (TOT).
