One of participatory conservation approaches is to empower people to plan, evaluate and monitor effective conservation practices as CCnet coaches and expand their network nationally and internationally. Generally, this type of training allows upgrading conservation effectiveness through building capacities of PA officers, specialists, and rangers and updating or revising annual conservation plans for PAs through the trained or empowered coaches.  
Recently, on May 21-25, 2018, the WWF Mongolia and TNC-Mongolia Representative Offices jointly hosted conservation coaches training in Mongolia. It was an international training attended by 26 representatives from the governmental organizations: the Ministry of Environment and Tourism and PA Administrations and the international NGOs: WWF and TNC Representative Offices in Mongolia, Russia, and China, the neighboring countries, and facilitated by international CCnet coaches.  
On training, the open standards for conservation planning were presented and followed by planning exercises. One of the main training purposes was to empower the participants to supervise and guide conservation planning.  The participants shared and exchanged their views on overcoming existing barriers/constraints and effective approaches to solve them during planning. On other hand, the training was an enabling environment for the conservation practitioners to be networked with regards to their improved performances and communications according to the participants.
