About this item

Forest management auditing is expanding from its traditional focus on forest management, stewardship and chain of custody certification to more innovative topics such as ecosystem services, forest carbon credits, non-timber forest products, wood energy and fair trade certification. Forest managers, auditors and project developers require a range of skills, capacities and expertise to monitor these issues. This book outlines the market-based tools that are required by such professionals to ensure corporate social responsibility in the forestry sector.

It shows how a mutual learning process between established forest certification processes and innovative markets is needed. It addresses key topics such as the Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) and High Conservation Value (HCV) approaches, the role of independent certification versus due diligence process and the engagement of smallholders and SMEs. Beginning with a market and policy analysis, the book fosters a deeper understanding of standards, methodologies and auditing techniques. Numerous case studies are included from a wide range of contexts, including both temperate and tropical forests, developed and developing countries. Overall, the book analyses all the steps towards forest management and forest products and services certification.
