Microphone Why engaging growers is an opportunity not a burden

Gotz Martin, head of sustainability implementation at Golden Agri-Resources, and Ian Welsh summarise some of the discussion points from a recent Innovation Forum workshop. They talk about the incentives that can work to help empower smallholder farmers, enabling them to increase farm incomes without clearing new land. Martin outlines some of the challenges around payments for ecosystem services, and why just paying farmers to preserve forests isn’t the answer.
