Based on your readings on HVC and on the video on the High Carbon value approach, it was possible to see a variety of tools and techniques to understand land use change overtime. You as an auditor are not expected to develop such type of assessments as part of your ProTerra auditing. Remember that the burden to demonstrate compliance lies with the auditee. Of course, you can prepare for your audit consulting readily available materials, but ideally the auditee should be prepared to clearly demonstrate compliance with the cutoff date of January 2008.
Please in the case study of today write a few paragraphs discussing:
1. What are the types of evidences are being presented by auditees (or researched by you in preparation for the audit) that are currently used in ProTerra Audits to access land use change? Please describe any opportunity to further improve these evidences should you find it necessary.
2. Considering the high conservation value areas as defined by the HCV Network, ProTerra V4.1 has explicitly included in the list of areas that may not be converted to agricultural land, areas with cultural values, archaeological or historical significance, and/or of critical cultural or religious/sacred importance for the traditional cultures of local communities or indigenous peoples. With respect to these areas to you see the need of any additional preparation from your side or evidence being provided by the auditee? What are sources of information that can help you in your auditing work with respect to this topic?
3. Considering the image below, what area, based on the High Carbon value approach and HCV concept, you understand could be clear for agricultural production and what issue should be raised by a ProTerra auditor?21 de December de 2020 at 10:01 #5492AlexiaKeymaster
