Metodologías de CECoP sobre los humedales

17/11/2009

En esta sección de las páginas del Programa de Promoción pondremos el acento en materiales útiles para quienes intervienen en el planeamiento de actividades de CECoP o elaboran y aplican programas y planes de acción de esa naturaleza; nos ocuparemos sobre todo de materiales que describan metodologías de CECoP relativas a los humedales, aunque también se incluirán metodologías menos específicas. Asociadas directamente a la ejecución de la Resolución X.8 de Ramsar, se ha redactado una Guía de planificación participativa de la acción y técnicas para facilitación de grupos, con la finalidad de ayudar a los Coordinadores de CECoP de las Partes Contratantes en la Convención en el proceso de planificación. Complementa esta guía la Caja de herramientas sobre actividades de CECoPde la CDB, que contiene instrumentos que permiten saber dónde, cuándo y cómo conviene recurrir a un abanico de intervenciones de educación y comunicación de mayor pertinencia para quienes desarrollan actividades de este tipo.

Las publicaciones reseñadas a continuación documentan un amplio abanico de metodologías de CECoP, no siempre centradas en los humedales. Se presentan en cuatro secciones: técnicas de comunicación; la comunicación, con énfasis en los centros de visitantes; las técnicas participativas; y los métodos en la educación ambiental y la educación para la sostenibilidad. Aunque esperamos que estas divisiones resulten útiles, tengan presente que no son mutuamente excluyentes y que habrá inevitablemente cierto solapamiento entre las secciones. Al igual que con otras páginas de este minisitio Web, éstas son una obra en marcha y confiamos en que los lectores estén deseosos de compartir en ella documentación eficaz que hayan concebido o empleado (pueden contactar para ello a: hails@ramsar.org).
