Do You Have Conservation Expertise?
We’re looking to recruit a pool of peer reviewers of HCSA assessments – a reserve of people to help meet upcoming demand as dozens of registered HCSA assessments are due to reach completion.
Areas of experience needed include tropical forest ecology, forest disturbance and regeneration, forest-related remote sensing/GIS, inventory and statistics, social values, community rights and participatory mapping.
Upcoming assessments are taking place in countries across the globe and although reviewers work remotely, we are particularly keen to hear from individuals with knowledge of tropical forests in central and western Africa and in Indonesia and from Bahasa Indonesian speakers.
HCSA peer reviewer and EC member Neville Kemp give a first-hand account of what the work entails and the benefits it can offer:
“If people want to further their career and be known as an expert in forest inventory, the High Carbon Stock Approach is incredibly well respected. And if you get involved with this work, you’re basically keeping your eyes on the forest – you are conserving the forests in perpetuity.”
