High Conservation Value



Bumitama commits to the protection, restoration and/or co-management1 of forests and other areas identified as having High Conservation Value ("HCV") by competent, accredited assessors.2
 
HCVs are biological, ecological, social or cultural values which are considered outstandingly significant or critically important, at the national, regional or global level.

All natural habitats possess inherent conservation values, including the presence of rare or endemic species, provision of ecosystem services, sacred sites, or resources harvested by local residents.
