As catastrophic impacts of climate change, deforestation and biodiversity loss continue to increase, there has been growing interest in the use of landscape and jurisdictional approaches to address these challenges and achieve sustainable commodity production at scale. The High Conservation Value (HCV) Approach holds huge potential to support these efforts because of its holistic nature and its applicability across commodities and ecosystem types.

To date, over 1,600,000 km2 of landscapes and jurisdictions have undergone large-scale HCV mapping exercises, in at least 19 countries.

This webinar, which is organised by the Tropical Forest Alliance (TFA) and the High Conservation Value Network (HCVN), will showcase examples of HCV screenings and other uses of the HCV approach at scale to support land use planning and forest protection. The webinar will also highlight upcoming guidance and tools to complement HCV Screening and support better identification, management, and monitoring of HCV at large scale.

The confirmed line up of speakers include:

• Nev Kemp, Landscapes Lead, HCV Network

• Hélène Mbaididje, Senior Program Manager, Proforest

• Stephan Kitzbichler, Advisor for Sustainability and Value Added in Agricultural Supply Chains, GIZ

Please note when you register for this webinar, you will be automatically registered to the Jurisdictional Action Network (JAN), managed by the TFA, comprising 1,400+ representatives of civil society, companies, donors, and development partners advancing the use of landscape and jurisdictional approaches to achieve a forest positive future at scale.
