WEBINAR | Understanding Land Use Change

10 October 2017 | Members Only

Join us for a webinar on 10 October at 3 pm CET.

Companies produce, trade and buy resources from around the world, and are in a unique position to help mitigate the negative impact of land use change on climate, biodiversity and local communities.

This exclusive webinar offers:

• A high-level overview of the concepts, trends, challenges, and risks around land use change linked to SAI Platform members’ responsible commodity sourcing and production commitments,
• The opportunity to discuss the private sector’s role in minimising the negative impact of land use change and identify where companies can instead influence a more positive effect,
• To stimulate discussion amongst SAI Platform’s Horizon Committee and ultimately inform SAI Platform and their members regarding policy positions on land use change.


We are delighted to host three leading experts as our guest speakers from our partner Proforest

Dr. Mike Senior, Senior Project Manager at Proforest. Mike is in Proforest’s Responsible Production team. He specialises in conservation and land-use planning in Southeast Asia and West & Central Africa, with a particular focus on the High Conservation Value and High Carbon Stock approaches.
