Dr Vin Fleming in St Helena

Dr Vin Fleming visited one of the Overseas Territories – St. Helena Island in the South Atlantic, in response to a request for advice from the St. Helena Government. He delivered a training course on writing funding proposals, working with people from a range of organisations on island, to improve skills to access additional funding for biodiversity conservation.

 

In addition, Vin provided training in the implementation of CITES  (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) to St. Helena Government staff and advised on how St Helena could better implement the Convention. Vin also ran a workshop to raise awareness of the use of economic valuation of ecosystem services as a means of better informing the St Helena government on decisions affecting the environment (and the services it provides to the people of St Helena).
