Partners + Projects

The Forest Carbon and Climate Program works with a variety of organizations that lend their expertise to curriculum development, help share program offerings and outcomes, and engage a wider audience of interested individuals.

Projects

UFCM-International (Spanish-language)

The FCCP fills needs for international education with a Spanish-language and internationally oriented version of the Understanding Forest Carbon Management course. 

USDA NIFA Regional (2019-2022)

With funding from USDA NIFA the FCCP and partners are developing educational content on key forest carbon issues and practical management applications in three U.S. regions: Pacific Northwest, Northeastern US, and Southeastern US.

Bosques + Gente: A Collaboration Bridging Development and Conservation

Good for forests, good for people? Enabling conditions for scalable success in Peru’s Conditional Direct Transfers (TDC) program.

FCCP + USFS Office of Sustainability and Climate

Along with the Office of Sustainability and Climate within the US Forest Service, the FCCP will develop a short series of videos that break down complex interactions and dynamics of forests and carbon.

UFCM-International (Spanish-language)

The FCCP fills needs for international education with a Spanish-language and internationally oriented version of the Understanding Forest Carbon Management course.

Safeguards for a Sustainable Forest Economy (CSFE)

The FCCP is providing support to The Nature Conservancy in the Climate Smart Forest Economy Program (CSFEP) in their development of potential “breakthrough initiatives” and safeguards, along with the World Economic Forum, the World Resources Institute, Dalberg, and Climate-KIC.

Landscape Scale Forest Carbon Modeling Project

The FCCP is collaborating with American Forests, NIACS, the Canadian Forest Service, the U.S. Climate Alliance to model the effects of forest management on carbon sequestration and storage in collaboration with state and federal partners.

New Module on Fire + Forest Carbon

With funding from USDA NIFA, FCCP and partners are developing educational content on the interactions between wildland fire and forest carbon as climate change drastically alters fire regimes away from historical norms and baselines.

Urban Forests, Carbon Storage, and a Changing Climate

Initial activities funded by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), FCCP and partners are developing and expanding upon existing work on urban forest issues in relation to carbon, climate change impacts and mitigation, along with associated municipal policies and environmental justice concerns.

Forest-Climate Working Group Science Series for Policymakers

The Forest-Climate Working Group (FCWG) invites experts to introduce key concepts related to forests’ role in climate change mitigation. The FCWG Science Series includes Latte & Learn educational sessions designed for policymakers and those that support policy decision-makers, these morning sessions explore the science underlying forest health, products, and benefits in a changing climate.

USDA NIFA Support to Develop Short Course Training

The Michigan State University Forestry Department is working in partnership with the USDA Forest Service's Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS) and the USDA Northern Forest Climate Hub (USDA Hub) to develop a robust e-learning program with content focused on forest carbon management.

Weyerhaeuser Support to Develop e-Course on Forest Carbon and Climate Change

The Forest Carbon and Climate Program (FCCP) has received financial support from the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund to initiate creation of a new E-Course on Forest Carbon and Climate Change for a broad, interdisciplinary audience.

World Bank Forest Investment Program – Case Study

The Forest Carbon and Climate Program (FCCP) worked in partnership with the World Bank's Forest Investment Program (FIP) to develop and publish "A Case Study of the Forest Investment Program in Mexico."
