Following the launch of the CCB Standards Third Edition in December 2013, CCBA and Rainforest Alliance have been developing a Guidance document for users of CCB Standards, in particular for smallholder- and community-led projects, on key concepts and requirements in the Third Edition of CCB Standards. The CCBA Secretariat would greatly appreciate feedback on the draft CCB Standards Guidance document sections listed below.
- Defining Boundaries: Project Area, Project Zone, Communities, Community Groups and Other Stakeholders.
- Stakeholder Engagement and Free, Prior and Informed Consent.
- Net Climate Benefits.
- Programmatic Approach
- Gold Level for Exceptional Community Benefits.
In particular, please let us know if the explanations are not clear, if they are not sufficiently detailed or if there are additional questions and issues that you would like us to include.
Please send your comments or questions by email to Priti Narasimhan firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, 18th of March 2014 at the latest.
