This E-Learning Course on the UNCCD Reporting Process is designed to help participants to undertake the UNCCD Reporting Process. The course is based upon the manual that guides UNCCD in accordance to the new strategic framework (2018-2030), which has 5 Strategic Objectives and an implementation framework, which reporting entities must report against. This course simplifies the manual thus making it easier to use.
Welcome to the UNCCD Capacity Building Marketplace, where we have developed a collection of specialized material to support the 2017-2018 Reporting Process. You can now download the E-Course, which contains numerous tips and training videos.
The course is free of charge and available now. We strongly encourage all the Reporting Entities and genuinely interested individuals and organizations to make use of this tool, in order to increase their knowledge on the Reporting Process 2017-2018.
