ECOSYSTEM SERVICES VALUATION: A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

MWASAPI

Hi Boby this is Burton Solo from Tanzania. Earlier this May I was enrolled on this course “ecosystem service evaluation: a step by step guide” and studied all the activities including quizzes, then there were some problems in downloading a certificate but later on 08/05/2019 I managed to download it. My concern is, the downloaded certificate is not about the enrolled course, it is about “understanding resilience thinking”. Please help me to get to download the real certificate. Kindly please find the attached certificate as evidence . I submit

Melissa Søvik

Hello Burton! We had some technical issues with the certificates, it should now be resolved. Please try to download your certificate again. We apologize for the inconvenience!

MWASAPI

Thanks Melissa, I have managed to download a real one.

How can I obtain the certificate when I mistakenly complete the survey of the course before starting it?

Julie Kapuvari

Dear César,

Thank you for your comment. In order to download the certificate, you must complete all of the course materials, not just the course survey. We hope you enjoy the course!
