Networking and cross-mentoring

Being identified as one of the strategy developed for regional expansion, "networking and cross-mentoring" approach for research - based documentation and documentation based training facilitates long term sustainability of the project as a whole. Within the intended scope of the “cross-mentoring” strategy, it is expected that sites with overlapping needs and resources may jointly organize training, research and/or documentation activities, as appropriate.  Accordingly, monitoring and evaluation may also be undertaken in regional and sub-regional contexts as result of the strategy.

Project sites engaging in network building at the local and national levels amongst the key stakeholder groups occupying conservation, policy-making, or sangha governance, a immediate impact with multiple effect will also be reflected in these wider circles. At the site level, based on the needs and resource availability, study tours, exchange of trainers, experience sharing on documentation and  training activities will occur along the way to establish and to consolidate "networking-building" which is a approach imbedded in sustainability for both long and short term. 

With the support of the national and local institutions in place at implementing sites, UNESCO is able to bring different sites together forming strategic linkages, sharing resources and experiences and together making informed decisions through workshops and regional caucus which are proven to be useful and effective platforms where ideas for generating sustainable implementation outcomes are taking their shape.
