The self-paced version of Landscape Approach 101 e-course is now available for TerrAfrica community. You can find it here: https://olc.worldbank.org/content/landscape-approach-101-self-paced.

The Landscape-based Approach is increasingly recognized as an effective mean to address challenges in food security, ecosystem conservation, and climate change. This e-course explains key features of landscape approach, governance and showcases. It presents useful tools in design and implementation of landscape interventions. It requires 4-5 hours of online learning.

“‘Landscape 101’ shows that large –scale transformational change across an entire landscape is possible. Understanding and implementing critical steps, such as giving long-term land use rights to smallholders, penning livestock, or letting trees regenerate can lead to amazing results in just a decade. It’s an exciting time to replicate the enormous success we had for example on China’s Loess Plateau, where we were able to increase food security and lift farmers out of poverty by giving ecosystems a break.” — Juergen Voegele, Senior Director, Agriculture, World Bank “What would it take to transform rural areas into resilient landscapes?”

Monitoring is important in implementing afforestation and reforestation projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). This e-learning course presents the methods for carbon monitoring in these types of projects, and includes three modules:
•Module 1: Preparing for Project Monitoring (reviews key concepts, such as carbon pools, project stratification and boundary, sampling design and species data)
•Module 2: Monitoring Forest Carbon Stocks (how to measure various forest carbon pools)
•Module 3: Monitoring Project Emissions and Leakage (explores sources of project emissions and leakage)

Climate-smart agriculture enhances food security and climate change resilience while mitigating climate change through carbon sequestration. Sustainable agricultural land management practices (SALM) help realize this triple-win. This e-course, based on the new SALM carbon accounting methodology, presents how soil carbon is monitored and accounted in an agricultural land management project, how the SALM methodology is applied in Kenya, and how it benefits thousands of smallholder farmers by generating the triple wins as mentioned above. It aims to equip learners with basic knowledge and skills in developing and monitoring an agricultural soil carbon project with easy-to-understand course contents and visual learning tools throughout the course.
