Training Programs

In-country Train-the-Trainers (TTT) programs demonstrate innovative teaching methodologies that range beyond traditional lecturing, and provide participants with new skills and tools for more effective teaching. The 5-day intensive TTT programs are delivered by senior professors from the IUCN Academy of Law working with local trainers, often simultaneously in both English and the local language. Regional roundtables are held periodically for participants to reinforce learnings and report on commitments pledged from the TTT Programs.
