Annual report 2015

2015 was a busy year for the HCV Resource Network. In July the Network became legally independent from Proforest, its institutional host since 2011.

Last year, the Network actively engaged with the High Carbon Stock Approach (HCSA) Steering Group, supported efforts to implement HCV, HCS and FPIC jointly in practice and developed the Forest Integrity Assessment tool manual (supported by WWF Sweden).

Other activities such as the approval of the HCV for smallholder’s tool (by RSPO Biodiversity), a workshop in London about High Conservation Values with more than 10 sustainability certification schemes (in collaboration with ISEAL Alliance) and the launching of “Things That Matter” campaign at the XIV World Forestry Congress, were part of the Network’s agenda.

The Secretariat participated in the 13


Annual Roundtable Conference on Sustainable Palm Oil (RT13) at Kuala Lumpur and in the 18


International Palm Oil Conference held in Colombia.
