Congratulations to Vardhan, Vineeta, Jennifer, Terry and Ulli. All have been awarded funding for their Trainer's Projects. (And there are lots of other projects that have been approved or are nearly there!) 

Vardhan is leading a training in early 2014 "Incorporating resilience concepts into current reef monitoring in the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago" with Nature Conservation Foundation. 

Vineeta is using her funds to support a variety of workshops and trainings in Lakshadweep, including a communication training for teachers and community-based organizations. 

Ulli is running a Bleaching Response Plan training in Stone Town, Zanzibar, for a variety of stakeholders from around the island. David Obura will be presenting at her training! 

Jennifer and Terry are planning a bleaching monitoring and response training for dive operators in iSimangaliso Wetland Park, South Africa in early 2014. 

I'll post an update soon about the next round of funded projects! We've been very impressed with the high quality of proposals and the wide variety of ideas for implementing resilience management strategies in the Western Indian Ocean region.
