While Madagascar aims at strengthening its network of Marine Protected Areas in the context of Sydney's Promise, the number of professionals skilled in marine environment protection remains limited. IHSM will train 20 young professionals in marine wildlife monitoring, protected area management and fisheries management, through in-door training as well as field research in two important sites of the Toliara region. Regional exchanges will be organized with Nature Seychelles to transfer experience on coral reef management and restauration.

Strategic Direction: 3 Strengthen civil society capacity at local and regional levels through training, exchanges and regional cooperation.
