Why collaboration bears fruit in the palm oil sector
Cargill's Marie Lavialle-Piot, PepsiCo's Natasha Schwarzbach and Proforest's Sophie Higman discuss with Ian Welsh the benefits of a landscape-level approach to palm oil supply, with collaboration between companies, local government and NGOs on-the-ground.
Detailing a case study project in Sumatra, Indonesia, they outline the complex challenges inherent in moving from mapping where problems are to action to tackle them and dealing with restoration and other interventions to protect forests and local livelihoods.
