Management of Protected Areas-Programme on Philippines
"An exiting initiative", states Prof. Malou McGlone of the University of the Philippines in Manila. Under her direction, the university is preparing a Master’s degree programme for the Management of Marine Protected Areas. The programme is being developed in close collaboration with Klagenfurt University and the University of Connecticut. The American development agency USAID is funding the development of the concept and the preparation of the courses. The intended participants in this international degree programme are managers of protected areas in South East Asia, in particular from the Triangle Coral Reef. The training programme is due to commence in June 2013, and the venture will be supported by a number of international institutions.
