OTGA/INVEMAR Training Course: Áreas Marinas Protegidas (AMPs)

Monday, 18 November 2019 - Friday, 22 November 2019

El curso brinda un contexto sobre las Áreas Marinas Protegidas - AMP a nivel global, su importancia, su situación para Latinoamérica y frente a amenazas como el  cambio climático, en el marco de las metas Aichi y los objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible 13 y 14. Abarca los temas de bases conceptuales sobre áreas marinas protegidas, planeación, manejo, gobernanza, monitoreo y desarrollo de estrategias para el desarrollo de actividades sostenibles al interior de las AMP, adaptación al cambio climático, entre otros. Busca también una retroalimentación por parte de todos los estudiantes de acuerdo a sus experiencias y entrenamiento adquirido en temas de conservación y manejo, para promover el desarrollo de metodologías que orienten hacia el manejo efectivo de las AMP. Busca la apropiación y producción del conocimiento, así como el desarrollo de la capacidad crítica del estudiante orientada hacia el conocimiento sobre AMP que resuelva el tipo de preguntas porqué crear AMP? Cómo crearlas?, Cómo responder a metas nacionales e internacionales sobre AMP? factores de impacto y/o amenazas naturales y antrópicas y la efectiva gestión y adecuado manejo de las AMP.

Scientific meeting of experts to understand tsunami sources, hazards, risk and uncertainties associated with the Colombia/Ecuador border

Monday, 27 January 2020 - Thursday, 30 January 2020

The purpose of this meeting is to identify sources of tsunamis that may affect the coastline of Colombia and Ecuador, and to assess the risks that arise from a local tsunami. The meeting will be focused on exploring tsunami sources in the Colombia/Ecuador coast, and more specifically on the Nazca-South America plates subduction zone.

The accurate assessment of tsunami risk in a region requires a credible record of past tsunami events. Source data from various institutions, as well as field data from observatories is of great help. Cooperation among experts in the field of seismology, geology, geodesy, sea level monitoring, sedimentology, tectonics, tsunami modelling, paleo-seismology, paleo-tsunami and even history is crucial to develop a sound scientific tsunami hazard assessment. Such cooperation helps organize data and information to accurately evaluate the hazard.
