In continuing to support the ELD Initiative capacity-building endeavours, a second ELD MOOC is being offered by the Initiative. Building off the 2014 ELD MOOC, which focused on performing cost-benefit analyses to promote sustainable land management, the 2015 ELD MOOC addresses the importance of working with relevant stakeholders to implement sustainable land management choices effectively and sustainably.

The course introduces approaches to identify options and pathways for action, methods to identify stakeholders, and how to establish a basis for initiating engagement and discussion. At the end of the course, participants will develop their own stakeholder engagement plan. This MOOC will help participants understand how to effectively engage with stakeholders, and address and remove barriers to the successful adoption of sustainable land management. It draws from a range of publications, guidelines, examples, and case studies (inclusive of both successes and failures in order to identify best practices), selected under the guidance of experts of the ELD Initiative.
