LEAF's Regional Climate Change Curriculum Development Training Workshop Report
LEAF and the USFS had been collaborating with American and Asian academics to develop climate change curricula for forestry and natural resources management courses and programs in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam, and thereafter in Malaysia and Papua New Guinea. This work is part of a broader LEAF objective to build countries’ capacity to conduct economic valuations of forest ecosystem services and monitor carbon stocks.
Participants evaluated course modules and some recommended training of trainers courses; pilot short courses; regional fora for teaching climate change; the incorporation of more case studies and that a climate change glossy be created in various languages.
The report also contains a summary of ways that such workshops would be improved and how participants planned to apply what they had learned.
