This webinar was part of a series organized by the FAO elearning Academy, Agreenium, UN-ESCAP, and the Future Food Institute (FFI) to discuss and learn from current trends in thematic areas related to various global challenges, such as climate change and sustainable development. Specifically, this session focused on the ways in which National Forest Inventories (NFI) can support climate action. The project presented a new web page, on the FAO eLearning Academy, that is based on the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) “Forests and Transparency under the Paris Agreement.” Further, the webinar provided an opportunity for practitioners, international experts, researchers and other professionals to interact and share experiences and perspectives, including representatives from Guatemala and Liberia. The University of Gottigen also provided insights on how academia is key to knowledge sharing and strengthening capacity for the implementation of NFIs. Also, the webinar launched FAO’s new series of online NFI training modules.
