Forests and Transparency under the Paris Agreement – Open Call
50 IFSA students have the opportunity to join the Online Tutored Course – Forests and transparency under the Paris Agreement, from 30 November to 11 December 2020.
The importance of forest conservation in the global efforts to fight climate change is recognized by Article 5 of the Paris Agreement, which explicitly endorses the key role forests play in limiting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and, ultimately, in achieving the long-term goal of reducing global temperature rise to well below 2°C.
Countries adhering to the Paris Agreement are required to report transparent and robust information on their emissions and on their implementation efforts, and in this context the quality of forest data is fundamental.
This online course is aimed at presenting how reliable and transparent forest information is interrelated with several aspects of the transparency framework of the Paris Agreement.
start by reviewing the progressions achieved so far by international climate policy,
what is coming next, and
what professionals and administrators interested in climate policy and action will need to consider.
learn that the principles at the basis of a sustainable National Forest Monitoring System (NFMS) are fundamental to meet the reporting requirements under the transparency framework established by the Paris Agreement.
During 2 weeks, participants will have the opportunity to join 3 modules with different topics related to the Paris Agreement. More information will be available after registration.
If you are interested, please register. After selection, 50 students will get the invitation to the course (the deadline for the registration is November 12th)
