HCVs (High Conservation Values) are biological, ecological, social or cultural values of outstanding significance or critical importance within a landscape. The HCV approach aims to ensure that areas for biodiversity and cultural and community needs are protected while allowing economic development and agricultural production.
The Malaysian National Interpretation for the Management and Monitoring of HCVs was produced through a multi-stakeholder consultation process involving NGOs, companies, concession owners, financial institutions, certification bodies and government agencies.
