Responsible: Mr. Lalith Amaralal, Head of Dept Economics and Marketing, National Aquatic Resources Research and Development Agency (NARA). email@example.com
The second workshop will focus on the economics and markets for natural living resources, as well as on a mix of working methods and skills:
National Inland Fisheries and Aquaculture Training Institute (NIFATI)
More than one day will be dedicated to excursion and fieldwork, in which the teams of students will develop ideas for their research project. The project will address small problems or opportunities of any kind in the utilization of resources along the coasts or lakes. The aim is to structure the problem and to attempt to find and communicate possible solutions.
The teams of students are invited to discuss their projects with the residential staff or with the guest lecturers along the workshop. The teams should also do the required research on their own, including online and library searches, as well as new observations or interviews in the field.
At the end of the workshop, the teams will present their draft projects to the residential lecturers. The final report is due latest two weeks after completion of the workshop and will be submitted digitally.
Full description available at our Learning Management System (link). Students will be able to retrieve preparatory literature in all subjects of the workshop, as well as structuring research questions.
A certificate of completion (workshop and project) will be issued together with the syllabus for the course. The syllabus also indicates the expected work load, for credit calculation.
