Developing online forest education resources

Recognizing the opportunities presented by developments in digital technologies to enhance forest education, the project is undertaking two major initiatives.

Online Platform for Forest Education

Under the leadership of IUFRO, the project is preparing a prototype of the Online Platform for Forest Education (OPFE).  The OPFE will be an enhanced online platform for knowledge sharing and communication among members of the Collaborative Partnership on Forests, their external partners, forest education institutions and other stakeholders. Informed by the results of the global surveys, the OPFE is being designed to provide enhanced search functionality while integrating information on a multitude of forest education resources.

Online Learning Course on Legal and Sustainable Supply Chains of Tropical Wood and Tropical Forest Products

ITTO is developing this online learning course under the project as a pilot effort to explore new approaches and technologies for forest training and education. The course will assist governments to build the enabling institutional and policy frameworks for promoting legal and sustainable supply chains and conducive business conditions for actors who operate in such a chain. The online course will cover several topics that revolve around sustainable forest management, but focus on assessing legality and ensuring accountability in the supply chain.  The topics will range from legality to sustainability and to market access. The course and a users’ manual will be finalized by December 2020.
