The RSPO Secretariat is seeking urgent nominations from RSPO Members to fill vacant alternate seats in the No Deforestation Joint Steering Group (NDJSG), particularly within the grower and social NGO sectors in preparation for upcoming meetings.
The NDJSG, a collaboration between RSPO and the High Carbon Stock Approach (HCSA), has been mandated to oversee the development of procedures, methodologies, and guidance for the implementation of C7.12 around High Forest Cover (HFC) countries and landscapes in consultation with Indigenous Peoples, local communities, and in-country Civil Society Organisations.
The existing composition of the NDJSG is as follows:
|Sander Van Der Ende||SIPEF||Grower|
|Surina Ismail (co-chair)||IOI (Co-Chair)|
|Lee Kuan-Chun||Procter & Gamble (P&G)||CGM/
Processor & Trader
|Laure D’Astorg||Alliance Forêts Bois|
|Laure Grégoire||Alliance Forêts Bois|
|Jenny Walther-Thoss||World Wildlife Fund (WWF)||E NGO|
|Anne Rosenbarger||World Resources Institute (WRI)|
The Terms of Reference (ToR) for the NDJSG can be downloaded here.
The 9th meeting is expected to be held in April 2023 (pending full representation of all sectors/caucuses).
