High Conservation Value Forest (HCVF) Toolkit for Malaysia
The HCVF concept was initially developed by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) for use in forest management certification in 1999 but the concept has now a number of other uses such as land use planning, policy commitments and conservation advocacy.
Now that the national interpretation is available, the next step is implementation on the ground by forest managers. WWF-Malaysia in its support towards the implementation of Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) will provide technical advice and support in identifying HCVF areas in forests through our Global Forest and Trade Network (GFTN) members.
