Course Topic: Fundamentals of Climate Change

Course:
Introductory e-courses on climate change

Brief Description:

The course 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

Course:
Integrating Climate Risk Information into NAPs

Brief Description:

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.

Course:
Integrated planning for climate change and biodiversity

Brief Description:

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.

Course:
Carbon measurement and monitoring

Brief Description:

Apart from the overview of forest carbon stocks and change, this module provides methodologies for forest carbon measurement and monitoring.

Course:
Designing MRV systems for entity-level greenhouse gas emissions

Brief Description:

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.

Course:
Greenhouse gas accounting tools for sustainable land management

Brief Description:

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.

Course:
Estimating GHG Emissions and Carbon Sequestration in Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use with EX-ACT

Brief Description:

Agriculture, 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.
