Landscapes Workshop Report (2022)

Over the last 20 years, the High Conservation Value (HCV) Approach has mainly been applied in single sites for planning production of palm oil, forestry, and other commodities, while ensuring protection of High Conservation Values (HCVs). However, to effectively tackle the climate and biodiversity crises, the HCV Network has started to scale up focus from single commodities and individual farms to entire landscapes and jurisdictions.

On November 30th, 2022, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the HCV Network Secretariat hosted a workshop for several HCV Network Members and partners to discuss how to accelerate this agenda, and how to translate HCV Screening results to effective, long-term actions for protection of HCVs in landscapes and jurisdictions. The HCV Screening methodology was developed by the HCV Network in 2019 in response to increasing demand and interest to scale up the use of the HCV Approach in landscapes and jurisdictions where there is commodity production and other types of land uses.
