Forest and Water Programme

Capacity development

The Forest and Water Programme has developed the Advancing the Forest and Water Nexus - A capacity development facilitation guide, a module-based facilitation guide that aims to improve the management of forests and trees for the provision of water-related ecosystem services. The facilitation guide provides appropriate background information, resource materials and a proposed facilitation plan to support the delivery of participatory learning workshops, or capacity development programmes.

The additional material for each of the 6 modules is available in this section.
