The International Ranger Federation (IRF) World Ranger Congress (WRC) provides a unique opportunity for rangers from all over the world to gather together and collaborate on issues affecting rangers globally.
This year the 9th World Ranger Congress is set to take place in Nepal, where rangers can share knowledge, create partnerships and build capacity through a cross-pollination of ideas, techniques and best practice conservation/management initiatives that have been tried and tested in conservation areas around the world. The conference in Chitwan will be held from 12-16 November this year and is expecting a relatively large turn-up due to it being the first ever World Ranger Congress in Asia.
The organizing committee will organize 6 training sessions offered pre- and post- congress at 2 National Parks in Nepal. The training sessions will run from 7 to 10 days with a maximum of 25 participants attending each training event. Participants will be able to observe and learn from some of the best practices employed at the pair of National Parks, which are known to be amongst the best-managed parks in Asia.
Since the International Ranger Federation World Ranger Congress aims to give a platform to those with important messages and expertise regarding rangers and the important work they do day-to-day, the congress welcomes participants from all over the world to get involved and share topics with your colleagues and counterparts in either a workshop/training format, a 12-minute talk, or a presentation of a poster on a topic. The deadline for these proposals is the 15 of April, 2019.
