New guide to managing high conservation values in FSC-certified forests open for consultation from 3 May until 2 July.
The high conservation values technical working group (HCV-TWG) has developed the High Conservation Values (HCV) Manager’s Guide and a set of intact forest landscape (IFL) indicators in response to Motion 65 of the 2014 FSC general assembly. The Guide clarifies specific requirements for the identification, management planning, operations, monitoring, and restoration of HCV in FSC-certified forests. The IFL indicators have been developed for inclusion in FSC’s set of international generic indicators (IGIs). The revised draft of the Guide and the IFL indicators will be released for public consultation from 3 May until 2 July. read more
