You are accessing the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that was based on the FAO e-learning course “Forests and transparency under the Paris Agreement” available on the FAO e-learning Academy at this link: It was delivered simultaneously in English French and Spanish, in three editions in 2020/2021.

Participants learnt about the importance of forest-related data collection, analysis and dissemination in meeting the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) requirements of the Paris Agreement. This MOOC is made available here in order to share the associated materials and resources that were specifically developed for it, thus offering you a richer, more comprehensive set of learning materials than the self-paced e-learning course.

Please note that this “MOOC experience” is certified: by passing the final test you can earn your Forests and Transparency Digital Badge certification!

The MOOC was jointly developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and funded by the Capacity-Building Initiative for Transparency (CBIT) trust fund of the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
