This course provides you with an overview of the history of RaCP, how to conduct Land Use Change Analysis (LUCA) and a liability assessment, as well as how to develop an RaCP plan and monitor the implementation of the plan.

Remediation and Compensation Procedure (RaCP) requires RSPO members who own and/or manage oil palm plantations (including associated and schemed smallholders, and all other exclusively contracted out growers of fresh fruit bunches) to disclose any land clearance without prior High Conservation Value (HCV) assessment, since November 2005. This course provides you with an overview of the history of RaCP, how to conduct Land Use Change Analysis (LUCA) and a liability assessment, as well as how to develop an RaCP plan and monitor the implementation of the plan.

Course Curriculum

Remediation and Compensation Procedure: Why and How It was Developed 00:00:00
The Remediation and Compensation Procedure was developed to provide a way for growers to remediate and compensate for non-compliant land clearance. This video highlights the thinking and people behind the procedure and how it was developed.
To Whom and Which Cases does this Procedure Apply? 00:00:00
Although the Remediation and Compensation Procedure has been designed to address the loss of HCVs after non-compliant land clearance, the use of this procedure is quite specific. This module explains what type of growers the RaCP applies to. It also describes to which this particular procedure applies, and to which it doesn’t.
Remediation and Compensation Procedure at a Glance 00:00:00
This module takes a quick glance at the overall process of the Remediation and Compensation Procedure. A short description of the essential steps of the procedure can be found here.
Compensation Panel 00:00:00
The Compensation Panel is one of the key elements that make sure the Remediation and Compensation Procedure achieves its objective to compensate for HCV losses. Who are its members and what does the Panel specifically do? Find out in this video.
HCV Assessment and the Role It Plays in RSPO Standard 00:00:00
Failure to conduct HCV assessment before land clearance after November 2005 was what triggered the development of the Remediation and Compensation Procedure. This module provides a brief description in what HCVs are and the role it plays in RSPO as a global palm oil sustainability standard.
Disclosure of Non-Compliant Land Clearance 00:00:00
The first step of a process is critical to ensuring positive outcomes. This module discusses the disclosure of non-compliant land clearance by growers, the process, when they have to do it, and its benefits.
Land Use Change Analysis and its Role in RaCP 00:00:00
The main tool used to determine growers’ liabilities for non-compliant land clearance in Remediation and Compensation Procedure is the Land Use Change Analysis, or LUCA. This video elaborates the types of data used and the categorisation of land clearance as part of this analysis.
Classification of Vegetation for Land Use Change Analysis in RaCP 00:00:00
The calculation of conservation liability under RaCP is based on the type of vegetation cover in the area prior to non-compliant land clearance. This video highlights how to classify the vegetation cover and the coefficients attached to each category, which will be used as a multiplier in the calculation of conservation liability.
Identifying Social Liability 00:00:00
HCVs that affect local communities and indigenous peoples the most include HCV 4, representing environmental services, HCV 5 for basic community needs, and HCV 6, for cultural identity. This module focuses on growers’ social liability due to the loss of these HCVs and elaborates the data needed to identify such a liability.
Total Liability under the RaCP 00:00:00
This video provides an overall view of the total liability for non-compliant land clearance for RSPO members and non-members and how to calculate it. The rule of thumb is: more recent non-compliant clearance carries more severe liability, and RSPO members bear heavier liability than non-members.
Negotiation and Agreement on Social Remediation 00:00:00
Social remediation includes restoring, substituting, or financially compensating for the loss of social HCVs. This video includes guidelines about negotiations with local communities, the types of social remediation, and to whom remediation should be provided.
Environmental Remediation 00:00:00
Environmental remediation ensures that all land where there has been non-compliant clearance is returned to compliance. Watch this video to see what growers must do as part of environmental remediation under the Remediation and Compensation Procedure.
How to Meet Conservation Liability and Design Compensation Projects 00:00:00
This video describes the available options for growers to meet their conservation liability and what should be considered in developing compensation projects. The module also includes guidance and examples of biodiversity compensation programs that could maximise ecological gain in a cost-effective way.
Approval Process for Remediation and Compensation Plans 00:00:00
This module provides a brief guideline on the process to develop Remediation and Compensation plans, from concept note to full plans, how to get them ready for review to secure approval, and the timeline for the whole process.
Monitoring the Implementation of Remediation and Compensation Plan 00:00:00
Monitoring is the final, but critical, element of the Remediation and Compensation Procedure. This video discusses how monitoring and reporting is done, options that are available for this process, and how to address potential alterations to the programs.
