Level Growth and partners

Work with concession holders at the individual farm level to:

1. Assess, delineate and map all current and potential HCV/conservation areas within and bordering the plantations.

2. Implement a standardized monitoring and data collection program, such as SMART, which supports continuous protection of conservation areas, and tracking of key wildlife species.

3. Partner with national and international universities, NGOs, and other organizations and individuals to provide technical expertise and training, and credible third-party quality assurance.

4. Promote a ‘landscape approach’ to the conservation of rare and endangered species by working with neighboring concession holders and communities to create forest/wildlife corridors and conservation areas, with built in long-term sustainable support.
