Assessing High Conservation Values in Colombia
A growing number of sustainability initiatives and certification standards use the concept of High Conservation Values (HCVs) to identify, manage and monitor sites and features that are especially important for conservation. The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) among others require an assessment of HCVs as part of their certification processes.
To meet the demand in Latin America for well qualified and highly competent assessors of HCVs, Proforest and the Proyecto Paisaje Palmero Biodiverso are running our next course in Colombia from 14 to 18 September. With the support of Fedepalma and Cenipalma the course will provide practical instruction on HCV assessments, in line with the requirement of the HCV Assessor Licensing Scheme.
