Compensation Task Force

Principle 7 of RSPO principles and criterion outline the requirement for responsible development of new plantings. Criterion 7.3 stated that new plantings since November 2005, have not replaced primary forest or any area required to maintain or enhance one or more high conservation values.

Noting in the National Interpretations for Malaysia and Indonesia regard period from December 2005 to November 2007 as the initial pilot implementation phase of RSPO P&C, and the P&C stated that “where HCV status of the land is unknown and/or disputed, the land will be excluded from the RSPO certification programmes, until and acceptable solution for HCV compensation has been developed.”

The RSPO Board has also decided that there will be a facilitated process within the RSPO to develop a framework to guide members though the process of compensating for land cleared without prior HCV assessment during the initial pilot implementation period.

Compensation Task Force was established in August 2011 to support the RSPO to develop a guidance document on HCV compensation and also to pilot test the proposed mechanism. It was formed under the Biodiversity and High Conservation Value working group (BHCV WG) and all BHCV members are part of the CTF with additional invited experts.
