Professional Development Courses

The FCCP hosts a collection of online non-credit courses that provide professionals with practical knowledge and skill-building in topics of forest carbon science, policy, and management. 

Partners and Projects

Program objectives are achieved through working with strategic partners to better communicate and bring attention to key topics, create educational content and programming, and bridge dialogue gaps on carbon and climate topics related to forests and forested lands. 


The FCCP engages with various audiences through activities like free webinars, an online community for our alumni, event participation, and trainings. These activities create accessible outlets to share information about forest carbon and climate adaptation and mitigation to connect decision-makers with the communities they serve.
