FAO E-Learning: How to Monitor and Promote Policy Changes on Governance of Tenure

This module is Part 9 of FAO's Responsible Governance of Tenure E-Learning Programme

Real accountability starts by putting knowledge and tools in the hands of the people. That is why the International Land Coalition (ILC) welcomes this collaboration with FAO - one of its founding members - to develop a free online course on "how to monitor and promote policy changes on governance of tenure".

FAO's e-learning centre provides access to over 100 courses, all available as a public good. "Monitoring and evaluation has been in demand since 2012, and so we are extremely pleased to join forces with ILC to offer this course as a way to support monitoring activities at the national level", says Andrew Nadeau, Capacity Development Head at FAO Headquarters.

As part of FAO's Responsible Governance of Tenure E-Learning Programme, this course is a critical addition to the seven course package providing learning materials on what to monitor, what data is useful and how to get the message across. Other courses available in the programme include: respecting free, prior and informed consent; addressing corruption in land tenure issues; governing land for women and men; and many more.
