Partnerships and incentives for more sustainable palm oil
07 Jan 20
Emily Kunen, Gotz Martin, Róisín Mortimer and Ian Welsh
Emily Kunen from Nestlé, Gotz Martin from Golden Agri-Resources and Róisín Mortimer from Earthworm Foundation debate with Innovation Forum’s Ian Welsh how business and partner organisations can really help smallholder palm oil farmers grow incomes without clearing new land.
They discuss the challenges around developing traceability all the way to the farm level, land use planning and ownership, and indigenous land rights in particular. Involving and engaging local communities is an essential part of this.
