Learn about the Jurisdictional Approach Resource Hub, a one-stop resource that brings together the collective experience and expertise of the Tropical Forest Alliance’s partners working to advance jurisdictional and landscape approaches to tackle commodity-driven deforestation.
This event also launched the “Landscape Scale Action for Forests, People and Sustainable Production: A Practical Guide for Companies” along with other tools and resources for companies to scale-up their engagement in landscape and jurisdictional initiatives.
A Closer Look: Produce, Conserve, Include (PCI) in Mato Grosso
In this webinar, you will gain a better understanding of the ins and outs of Produce, Conserve, Include (PCI) in Mato Grosso, explaining the origins, how it was put together, the roles of key partners, the current governance model, measurement of progress against defined goals, etc. On the agenda are also concrete examples of private sector engagement in jurisdictional initiatives and how PCI ensures synergies with other platforms such as the VSA and CJA.
As jurisdictional initiatives start to be implemented around the world, we are slowly building a body of evidence about what works. This is being captured in part by measurement frameworks like IDH Verified Sourcing Areas and LandScale. ISEAL is supporting such initiatives by building alignment around the monitoring and verification practices that need to inform credible sustainability claims made by jurisdictional initiatives and the companies that source from them. In this webinar, ISEAL will present core ideas captured in their draft Good Practice Guide and explore how these can be of value to those that are supporting or implementing jurisdictional initiatives. The webinar is part of an ongoing ISEAL consultation.

Global sustainability standards for commodities often go beyond the requirements of national laws. Jurisdictional approaches aim to apply these standards to all commodity producers in sub-national areas. In this webinar Forest Peoples Programme presents lessons emerging from a review of four jurisdictional approaches, in Sabah in Malaysia, West Kalimantan and Central Kalimantan in Indonesia and Ecuadorian Amazonia. The studies reveal the vital importance of respecting human rights, especially to land, and the need for a resolution of land disputes, if sustainability criteria and development agency policies are to be upheld. With inputs from government and indigenous panelists from Malaysia and Indonesia, FPP staff will lead an exploratory and interactive discussion on how to make Jurisdictional Approaches human rights compliant.
