This in-person educational session will explore forests and forest products as nature-based solutions to reduce carbon emissions and protect our nation from climate-change impacts.
Earn a Graduate Certificate in Forest Carbon Science, Policy, and Management. The Certificate consists of three 3-credit courses, all available completely online. Participants include a wide range of graduate students, recent graduates, and working professionals.
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.
Program objectives are achieved through working with strategic partners to better communicate and bring attention to key topics, engage in collaborative research, create educational content and programming, and bridge dialogue gaps on carbon and climate topics related to forests and forested lands.
The Open Resource Library (ORL) is an online space dedicated to sharing educational outputs from our for-credit and non-credit course offerings to a wide audience of practitioners, educators, and members of the public. The primary goal of the ORL is to increase access to educational imagery, tools, and content regarding topics of forests and climate. This resource will be continuously updated to ensure visitors have access to up-to-date and relevant content from the FCCP.
