Hello Melissa. Same problem as Burton. Wrong certificate downloaded. This one is called certificate on “communicating the value of biodiversity”. Could you help me to download the right certificate “ecosystem services evaluation – a step by step guide” ? Thanks in advance. Best regards. Etienne.

Hello Melissa. I have just ended the course. After the course survey, they ask me to copy/paste a code to be able to receive the certificate. I never found the place to paste this code? Can you help me on this. Thank you very much for all. Best regards. Etienne.

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
