A new Climate Change Curriculum was launched recently on ConservationTraining. This new curriculum consists of three (3) new courses.
For those of you who have taken part or completed the Introductory Course on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation and Conserving and Enhancing Forest Carbon Stocks (REDD+), thank you. This course, originally released about 4 years ago, has been highly successful educating so many conservationists on the topics of climate change and REDD+. This course will remain on ConservationTraining until June 30th 2013, but will then be retired. If you are still in the process of taking this course (or would like a refresher on the topic) we recommend switching to the new curriculum as it has been updated with the latest scientific information.
The new curriculum consists of three (3) new courses.
Course 1, Introduction to Climate Change and the Role of Forests, focuses on the background information on climate change, the drivers of deforestation, and strategies for reducing deforestation and forest degradation.
Course 2, REDD+ Policy, covers the essential aspects of the technical, political, financial, social, and environmental issues related to REDD+. Finally,
Course 3, REDD+ Implementation, focuses on the basics of implementing REDD+ activities, while also educating on the topic of REDD+ policy negotiations and developing credible REDD+ activities in developing countries through basic capacity building.
Again, the original Introductory Course on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation and Conserving and Enhancing Forest Carbon Stocks (REDD+) will still be available until June 30th, 2013; however, it will then be retired. We highly recommend transferring to the new curriculum to take advantage of the updated science, examples, and case studies.
We are very excited about the release of the new Climate Change Curriculum on ConservationTraining. We hope you enjoy working through it. Thank you for your support of ConservationTraining.org. Happy Learning.
