Regional Workshop to Review GEO/IEA Training Manual
8-11 September 2008, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Objective: To deliver a multi-scaled set of capacity building products and services to enable UNEP’s clients to keep the environmental situation continuously under review at the global and sub-global levels.
DEWA Capacity Development Branch
MENTOR (Marketplace for ENvironmental Training and Online Resources) is a state of the art web-based platform for the consolidation of learning resources (tools, guidelines, methodologies, best practices and courses) in data collection, analysis, integrated environmental assessment, monitoring, early warning and information networking tailored for a diverse group of professional clients who are engaged in global, regional and national programmes aimed at keeping the environment under review.
The target group includes clients in developed countries, developing countries and countries with economies in transition with different levels of knowledge, experience and time availability.

Driving forces behind MENTOR
CB resources (tools, methodologies and manuals) are currently being developed and used by DEWA across the different regions. Some are customised to each region and different language versions exist.
Training has been based on traditional approaches (manuals and other hard copy materials, F2F workshops, different language customisations) without version control and record-keeping of training activities & impact.
Therefore, an internal DEWA requirement is to keep stock of training resources, courses, trainers network, trainees, eLearning tools and record the impact of the UNEP/DEWA training programme in environmental assessment and early warning.
