FAO is pleased to announce the e-learning course on “Sustainable Land Management and Land Restoration”, which has been developed in collaboration with CIHEAM-Bari, WOCAT, ELD and University of Leeds.
The course focuses on Sustainable Land Management (SLM) practices, and their place within the global development agenda, specifically in order to achieve SDG target 15.3, which aims "to achieve a land degradation-neutral world". It includes five interactive lessons that introduce participants to a variety of tools and methods available for planning, implementation and monitoring of SLM.
The course targets policy makers at different levels, extension service agents, practitioners, land and water management technicians and land users.
