A module-based facilitation guide that aims to improve the management of forests and trees for the provision of water-related ecosystem services.

The guide provides appropriate background information, resource materials and a proposed facilitation plan to support the delivery of a participatory learning workshop, or capacity development programme on the forest and trees-water nexus. The facilitation guide aims to (1) develop an understanding of forest (and trees) -water interactions within local and broader contexts; (2) conceive specific activities and/or actions that take an understanding of forest-water interactions into account; and (3) support the design of a forest-water monitoring plan and system that can work for the local context.

Recommended additional resources for each module of the facilitation guide are available in the capacity development section of the FAO website.
