Description

The course’s overall goal is to enhance the capacity of key stakeholders to optimize land-use planning to achieve compatible conservation and development results, including through the effective engagement of protected area systems.

This self-paced course promotes a dynamic learning approach through interactive lessons and multimedia contents. Participants will understand the nexus between biodiversity, climate change, and land-use plans; discover the rights and roles of different stakeholders in the planning and decision-making process, and consider ways to collaborate across national borders.

The course is organized into four modules:

  • Connecting land-use, climate change and biodiversity;
  • Inter-sectoral and inter-institutional collaboration;
  • Public participation in decision-making;
  • Regional planning for harmonization and connectivity.  

It is free of charge and can be completed within 4 months after enrolment.
