The goal of ITMEMS4 was to "strengthen the capacities of managers to apply evidence-based approaches, innovative technologies, and emerging science to address management challenges in the local context". ITMEMS4 combined the exposure to practical activities with targeted training to bridge common or shared gaps in knowledge, science and experience by:

  • Encouraging knowledge exchange and cooperation;
  • Demonstrating relevant application of technology and science in management strategies and programmes;
  • Providing targeted training and skills development to facilitate uptake of available approaches and tools; and
  • Developing networks for professional development and onward learning beyond ITMEMS4
