HCSA has a new Restoration and Remediation Guidance
The new guidance sets out HCSA principles and criteria for ecological restoration and social remedy in HCSA and HCV degraded areas.
Developed in collaboration with the High Carbon Stock Approach (HCSA) Steering Group and Executive Committee, and the HCV Network (HCVN), this new guidance sets out the HCSA principles and criteria for ecological restoration and social remedy for wrongly cleared and/or degraded High Carbon Stock (HCS) forests, High Conservation Value (HCV) areas, peatlands or community lands.
It stipulates minimum guidelines to:
- Restore to the highest level of ecological recovery
- Social remedy must respect Free Prior Informed Consent processes and is established with cooperation of affected communities
- Long-term restoration/remediation management and monitoring plans are established and well resourced
The guidance will be trialed over the next two years with implementation support from the Secretariats of the HCSA and the HCVN.
