High Conservation Value Forests (HCVF), is a conceptual tool originally aimed at zoning forested landscapes in order to optimise forest management. Born out of a voluntary certification scheme (FSC), it is now being pushed forward by corporations, governments and big conservation NGOs. Given that this tool raises a number of questions regarding the benefits and drawbacks of its use, this bulletin is aimed at providing information and analysis to facilitate informed participation in the debate.
