The massive open online course (MOOC) was designed to enable participants to: Recognize the role and importance of forests in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement; Identify the progressive changes and the level of responsibility required to move from the current measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) framework to the enhanced transparency framework, under the Paris Agreement; Better understand the foundation and concept of a National Forest Monitoring System (NFMS), including its main principles and elements; Learn how open and transparent forest-related data can support countries’ activities of reporting under the enhanced transparency framework; The first three editions of the MOOC engaged a large, diverse group of participants. Nearly 2000 forest and climate change professionals and students were trained through these editions of the MOOC. In its new and open format on the FAO eLearning Academy, the course will continue to strengthen the capacities of new cohorts of professionals on how the information needed to maintain sustainable NFMS is crucial to supporting countries in meeting their ETF reporting requirements.
