This Practitioner's Guide: Pathways and Options for Action and Stakeholder Engagement has been developed to facilitate engagement between stakeholders to identify options and pathways to action that can help tackle or adapt to the challenges of land degradation. It is based on materials developed for a Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) on ‘Options and pathways for action: Stakeholder Engagement’.
This course covers issues including challenges in valuing biodiversity and ecosystem services, particularly in developing countries, some core frameworks & methodologies for such valuation, local and national policy solutions, and business responses.
