1 Introductory e-courses on climate change The coursee combines multidisciplinary approach to incorporate greenhouse gas emissions (and removal from the atmosphere) be incorporated into a land use planning process to achieve environmentally sustainable land use https://unccelearn.org/course/view.php?id=7&page=overview UN Climate Change Learning Partnership Fundamentals of Climate Change

2 Basic Climate Change This course covers a broad range of climate change topics, including causes and effects, mitigation and adaptation, application of tools and technologies, and communications. https://www.recoftc.org/learning/course/1211-basic-climate-change RECOFTC Fundamentals of Climate Change

3 Open online course on gender and environment The course will help you better understand the linkages between gender and the environment. It will provide you with the knowledge and tools to mainstream gender, and to be an effective change-maker for sustainable development. It will also give you facts and figures, and a better understanding of the global international frameworks related to gender and environment. https://www.edx.org/course/landscape-governance-collaborating-across-sectors-and-scales-2 UN Climate Change Learning Partnership Fundamentals of Climate Change

4 Climate change and food security This course provides an overview of the impacts of climate change on food security. It also introduces climate-smart agriculture and practices that contribute to climate change adaptation, mitigation, food security and development. https://elearning.fao.org/course/view.php?id=143 FAO Fundamentals of Climate Change

5 Integrating Climate Risk Information into NAPs The course Integrating Climate Risk Information into NAPs shows how to strengthen National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) through appropriate climate information and coordinated policy action, enabling  different types of institutions and actors to work together in a collaborative framework, drawing on the resources of the global hydro-meteorological community at large. https://unccelearn.org/course/view.php?id=60&page=overview UN Climate Change Learning Partnership Fundamentals of Climate Change

6 Integrated planning for climate change and biodiversity Land-use planning frameworks have traditionally focused on developing settlements and related infrastructures with limited consideration of biodiversity conservation and climate adaptation and mitigation requirements. It is underused in maximizing win-win solutions for human well-being and sustainability under the threat of global climate change. Awareness and knowledge of land-use planning as a tool for biodiversity and climate resilience are to be raised and strengthened among relevant actors at various levels. https://www.unitar.org/event/full-catalog/integrated-planning-climate-change-and-biodiversity-0#new_tab UNITAR Fundamentals of Climate Change

7 Carbon measurement and monitoring Apart from the overview of forest carbon stocks and change, this module provides methodologies for forest carbon measurement and monitoring.  https://www.recoftc.org/learning/course/1345-carbon-measurement-and-monitoring RECOFTC Fundamentals of Climate Change

8 The national greenhouse gas inventory for land use This course provides the necessary knowledge to build a sustainable national greenhouse gas inventory and assess greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals from the land use sector. It focuses on the biological and physical process that lead to GHG fluxes from land use-related activities. https://elearning.fao.org/course/view.php?id=453 FAO Fundamentals of Climate Change

9 Designing MRV systems for entity-level greenhouse gas emissions The course describes how to develop economy-wide or sector-specific GHG reporting programs addressing various national and sub-national priorities and objectives. GHG reporting programs provide a platform to gather emissions data from entities and help mainstream emissions measurement and reporting. http://ghgprotocol.org/designing-mrv-systems-entity-level-greenhouse-gas-emissions GHG Protocol; materials from WRI & World Bank Fundamentals of Climate Change

10 Greenhouse gas accounting tools for sustainable land management An introduction to several Greenhouse Gas Accounting Tools that could be used to analyze Sustainable Land Management projects, policies and strategies. It will start by explaining why it is necessary to carry out Greenhouse Gas accounting analysis as part of sustainable land management investment planning. It will then lead into sharing a series of key concepts when it comes to GHG accounting. Finally, it will introduce six of the most commonly-used GHG accounting tools for Sustainable Land Management projects. https://olc.worldbank.org/content/greenhouse-gas-accounting-tools-sustainable-land-management-self-paced World Bank Fundamentals of Climate Change

11 Estimating GHG Emissions and Carbon Sequestration in Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use with EX-ACT Ariculture, Forestry and Land Use Change (AFOLU) as a whole is the second largest emitter of greenhouse gas (GHG). AFOLU, uniquely, also contributes to carbon sequestration as co-benefits through productive and sustainable landscape management? GHG accounting in the AFOLU sectors is an important indicator and integral to the design and planning of landscape interventions. The EX-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT), developed by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), is a useful tool for estimating GHG emissions and carbon sequestration in AFOLU projects. https://olc.worldbank.org/content/estimating-ghg-emissions-and-carbon-sequestration-agriculture-forestry-and-other-land-use-ex World Bank Fundamentals of Climate Change
