Brief Introduction   Land degradation affects us all directly or indirectly: food insecurity, pests, reduced availability of clean water, increased vulnerability to climate change, biodiversity loss, and much more. However, policy often fails to acknowledge this problem or is incapable to identify solutions. That’s why we offer this MOOC, to help understand how to influence policymaking to foster sustainable soil protection and rehabilitation. Theoretical and methodological input by experts will help you to clarify specific policy objectives, the preferred modes of communication of your target group, and to identify the most suitable engagement techniques or activities. You will have the opportunity to exchange views and experiences with experts and participants and work on the topic  in  an international network of practitioners, scientists and policymakers.
