Cascading knowledge: training fisheries trainers. Validated RNRRS Output.


This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy (RNRRS) programmes.

Associated with Projects R4778G, R8360 and R8468. Programmes to train trainers can cascade knowledge and skills through a system quickly and strengthen independence—there's no longer the need to rely on trainers from outside. So, to boost skills in fish stock assessment and fisheries management, workshops were held to develop cores of trained people. The trainee trainers also received quality training materials, such as presentations, course outlines and guides to writing fisheries management plans, to help them pass on their knowledge and skills to others. Leading national training centres—universities, and national training and research institutes—in East Africa, South East and South Asia, and the Caribbean are now using the training materials in formal courses. Plus, the materials are also widely used and spreading in grass-roots training.
