    The UNU-FTP offers financial and technical support to develop short courses in developing countries. This support is often provided in cooperation with international organizations. Through the process of short course development, the UNU-FTP aims to enhance the capacity of our partner countries to deliver fisheries education at a local level. The outcome of short course development is the course material, translated into the local language, and trained local professionals to teach the course. The courses are housed in training and/or educational institutes in an attempt to ensure sustained positive impact. The UNU-FTP requires that former UNU-FTP fellows take part in the development of the course. When the course has been designed and the teachers trained, then local teachers take over and deliver the course to the target group. Since it first started offering short courses in 2005, the UNU-FTP has developed and delivered nearly 40 courses in partner countries, training nearly 1,000 participants. While these courses have taken place in 15 different countries, they are often offered at a regional level. A list of these courses is available here: http://www.unuftp.is/en/short-courses/list-of-courses.
