The Forest Carbon and Climate Program (FCCP) Community is an online portal for current and past participants of FCCP formal education programming. Members in the online community receive news on policies and methodologies, internal networking and opportunities for research and employment. The online portal allows continued access to resources, a professional network, and online tools for learners beyond their completion of coursework. Invited participants reflect individuals from NGOs, private interests, graduate students, government and natural resource managers.
All current and past participants of the Graduate Certificate in Forest Carbon Science, Policy, and Management, current and past participants of non-formal educational programming, and engaged experts are invited to participate in the Community. If you'd like to request access to the FCCP Community, please contact email@example.com to see if you are eligible.
The FCWG Learning Exchange Series is hosted by Lauren Cooper, Program Director of the MSU Forest Carbon and Climate Program (FCCP), in partnership with the Forest-Climate Working Group (FCWG). The Series seeks to engage with the forest carbon community on current topics and issues in domestic forest carbon policies and management approaches for a changing climate.
