Training on the Management and Monitoring of HCV-HCS Areas In Oil Palm Plantations


The conservation of forest areas within oil palm plantations to safeguard and enhance their High Conservation Values (HCV) and High Carbon Stocks (HCS) is a key requirement for sustainability certification through the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). In order to fulfill this requirement, oil palm plantations need to implement a management and monitoring system for the HCV-HCS sites. For many oil palm plantations, however, the knowledge and skills needed to set up such a system fall outside their area of expertise. This training, therefore, aims to introduce the concept and best practices of HCV- HCS management and monitoring to relevant oil palm plantation staff.
