HCV-HCS for producers training course Malaysia

Many companies are required to maintain HCVs in their management units to comply with sustainability standards or buyers’ sustainability commitments. In practice, companies face a number of barriers that make it difficult to manage and monitor HCVs on the ground, for example, technical constraints or encroachment. Effective HCV management typically requires targeted, collaborative approaches and planning.

This course is geared primarily towards technical company staff from producer companies. It is open to participants from any sector but will be particularly relevant for the palm oil, forestry and rubber sectors. We also welcome other stakeholders involved in practical conservation on the ground in multi-use landscapes, such as conservation NGOs and government departments.

The course provides guidance, examples and tools to support the development and implementation of HCV management and monitoring plans, in line with the requirements of standards, such as the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

Course overview

This 12 hours training course will be broken down into 4-day series of online training course. The aim is for the course to be as practical as possible, with a focus on real-world case studies and practical advice that companies can implement on the ground to ensure that HCVs are maintained and companies comply with standards, such as the RSPO.

There will be no formal evaluation of participants, but it is expected that all participants to participate actively throughout the course.
