A free e-learning course on community-led forest management for sustainable development and climate change solutions that leave no one behind
The free e-course introduces community forestry as a pathway to solving the world’s greatest social and environmental challenges. Enrolment for the second batch starts 8 June 2021.
Countries around the world and in the Asia-Pacific region increasingly recognize the contribution community forestry makes to inspire climate change solutions and sustainable economic and social development. But what is community forestry? What forms does it take? Why do we need to involve local communities in forest management? What makes community forestry successful? What are the constraints to realizing the potential of community forestry?
Community forestry 101 will answer these questions and more. It focuses on the Asia-Pacific, but the concepts can be applied throughout the world. The journey through the course includes experiential and reflective activities based on real-life conditions. You will also have opportunities to share your ideas and collaborate with others.
RECOFTC ran the first batch of the e-course from 2 November 2020 to 15 January 2021.
Enrolment in Community Forestry 101 will be open until 30 June. After registration, the e-course will run from 22 June to 23 August 2021. The course is in English.
