FREE online course: IUCN Red List of Ecosystems – The Global Standard for Assessing Risks to Ecosystems

This course introduces the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems and its successful use and policy impact through real-world case studies

The IUCN Red List of Ecosystems is the global standard for ecosystem risk assessment, used by governments, NGOs, scientists and practitioners to sustain biodiversity worldwide.

Deakin has developed a free training course on the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems. The course is designed for conservation practitioners and decision-makers, as well as those with an interest in sustainability. It will help learners understand the Red List of Ecosystems approach and scientific basis, how the criteria and categories are applied, and how it can help make scientifically based decisions for policy and management practices.

This course is self-guided; while nominally designed over two weeks, it takes approx. 6 hours, and can be done at your own pace (even in one day). You can join the course as of Monday, June 1st 2020 or at any other time you choose.

There are also some parts that are accessible without logging in, for example THIS VIDEO, allowing you to meet Loyiso Dunga from SANBI in South Africa. Loyiso completed our four day Red List of Ecosystems training in Kenya in 2019. Defiantly worth watching 🙂

The course is available via the FutureLearn platform and focus on A/Prof Emily Nicholson‘s research (and work on the science-policy interface).

More information is available on the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems website.
