Maintaining healthy ecosystems and a vibrant fishing sector is of paramount importance to all coastal regions in the world. Making sure that the interests of the fishery sector are considered and represented versus the claims and interests of other user groups, is one of the tasks of the fisheries manager. The ecosystem approach takes the wider ecosystem and its interactions with fisheries into consideration.
Application: Interested candidates can apply at the website of Centre for Development Innovation, Wageningen UR for admission to the training.
NFP Fellowships: A limited number of fellowships is available from Nuffic – the Netherlands Fellowship Programme (NFP) for nationals of certain countries. In order to apply for such a NFP fellowship, you have to register through the Nuffic Scholarship Online (SOL) system. Applications for NFP fellowships should be submitted before 2 February 2013. SOL opens on December 01. You will be informed by Nuffic whether your application has been accepted. Important: Please note that for a valid NPF fellowship application you need to register directly at CDI as well as at Nuffic (SOL).
