FSC: A Call For Submissions From Standard Development Groups

18.04.2017 Share

We are looking for solutions and to build from grassroots experiences. The deadline for submissions is 26 May 2017.

We are looking for innovative ways to implement a risk-based approach to national or regional forest stewardship standard development, implementation, and/or auditing. The aim is to compile case studies that test and analyse different approaches to addressing the most relevant problems and barriers to forest management certification.

The level of maturity or development of the approaches could range from ongoing and well-developed methodologies to new ideas. They may focus on a specific topic within the Principles and Criteria, work across the whole NFSS, or tackle issues related to implementation and auditing requirements.

It is up to national and/or regional staff to determine the relevance and potential use of a case study with their SDGs. We will not, however, accept case studies that are not channelled through national or regional offices.
