Developing Biodiversity Indicators

The course focuses primarily on the development of biodiversity indicators at the national and sub-national scales, but the steps are relevant to those developing site-level indicators too. The first five lessons focus on national biodiversity indicator development in general, while the sixth lesson considers the role of indicators in updating countries’ National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs).

Duration: Six short lessons, each of which takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
Corals and Climate Adaptation Planning: Adaptation Design Tool

This course is designed to help coral reef managers incorporate climate-smart design into their management activities by considering the effects of climate change on ecosystem stressors and implications for effective management. It describes the process of incorporating climate change adaptation into management plans using existing planned actions as a starting point, and also guides development of additional climate-smart strategies as needed.

Duration: 2 hours Available language: English Course Audience: This course is designed for coral reef managers and decision makers.

Protected Areas and Sustainable Development

This module discusses how ecosystem services can best be incorporated into protected area management, and in so doing contribute to sustainable development. The lessons will improve your knowledge of the links between managing protected areas for biodiversity conservation and for ecosystem services. The module is designed for protected area managers, conservation practitioners, and conservation policymakers.

Duration: 4 hours
Introduction to the Conservation Open Standards

In order to achieve our conservation goals, the conservation community must determine the extent to which our actions are working – and we must be able to diagnose why some actions succeed while others do not. In recent years, here has been great convergence among conservation organizations in thinking about how best to plan and implement conservation actions.

In the Introduction to the Conservation Open Standards lesson is designed to give you an overview of adaptive management and a process for doing adaptive management for conservation projects, based off the Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation.

20 minutes


Measures Demystified

The Nature Conservancy is offering this self-paced, online training curriculum on measures, which represents the assessment or third phase of the plan-do-check-adapt conservation management cycle.

This self-paced courses provides conservation practitioners with the opportunity to explore, at their own pace, the process of considering the audience and conservation context for monitoring programs, as well as reviewing the fundamentals of articulating program logic and experimental design for cost effective data collection, which we collectively refer to as “measures.”


Getting to Know GIS

This is the first course of a six course series designed to teach you the principles of GIS. This course focuses on the five GIS functions, a working definition of GIS, and the key differences between paper and digital maps.

Duration: 3 hours

 

Marine Spatial Planning Without marine spatial planning, the delivery of diverse ecosystem services, now and in the future, is in jeopardy.

The online course and the translations of materials into Spanish were developed by TNC.

Topics covered include learning about the principles of EAFM and understanding why it is a preferred approach to sustainably managed fisheries. Practical advice on how to plan, implement and monitor the ecological, human and governance components of EAFM is provided along with a look at challenges that regional fisheries face in moving towards EAFM. Most importantly, this module provides an introduction to the people skills needed to incorporate an ecosystem approach into your existing fisheries management.
