Pour que la recherche ait un impact, la science a besoin de canaux de communication clairs pour aller droit au but. Le CIFOR-ICRAF est aussi passionné par le partage de ses connaissances que par leur production.
Para que la investigación pueda generar algún impacto, los conocimientos científicos requieren de canales de comunicación claros. En CIFOR-ICRAF, compartir nuestros conocimientos nos apasiona tanto como generarlos.
Ilmu pengetahuan membutuhkan saluran komunikasi yang jelas untuk mencapai tujuan, jika ingin dampaknya terlihat. CIFOR-ICRAF sangat bersemangat untuk berbagi pengetahuan sembari menghasilkan pengetahuan itu sendiri.
CIFOR–ICRAF achieves science-driven impact. We conduct innovative research, strengthen
partners’ capacity and actively engage in dialogue with all stakeholders, bringing the latest insights on
forests, trees, landscapes and people to global decision making.
CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests,
landscapes, people and the planet.
We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and
restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short,
improving people’s lives.
Palm oil is one of Indonesia’s key export commodities and contributes significantly to the country’s national and economic development. The Government of Indonesia has established various policies and programmes to address sustainability concerns associated with oil palm cultivation. These include deforestation, peatland degradation and loss, and forest and land fires. Other stakeholders, including the private sector, have developed their own sustainability policies and practices and ensuring that they comply with mandatory and voluntary sustainability standards. Public and trade policies in consumer countries are also strengthening and supporting sustainable palm oil value chains.
Challenges in relation to a sustainable oil palm sector in Indonesia include: the need to align policies and development goals with the country’s biodiversity, climate change and sustainable development commitments; coordination of various certification mechanisms; and limited capacity of smallholder farmers to comply with sustainability standards.
Further, the global trade of palm oil is regulated and influenced by diverse policy regimes, often leading to price fluctuations that ultimately disadvantage producers.
Under the Trade, Development and the Environment Hub (TRADE Hub) – a global research consortium led by the UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP WCMC) and supported by UK Research and Innovation Global Challenges Research Fund (UKRI GCRF) – the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), IPB University, and the University of Indonesia’s Research Center for Climate Change (RCCC-UI) are conducting research to further understand the complexities of, challenges to, and potential solutions for sustainable palm oil trade.
This high-level dialogue is an integral part of TRADE Hub’s research in Indonesia and a platform to bring key stakeholders and experts together to discuss issues and potential solutions for sustainable palm oil trade in Indonesia in light of global challenges surrounding food and energy crises.
The objectives of this high-level dialogue are:
To understand recent phenomena and complexities in the palm oil trade, such as price fluctuations
To discuss strategies for dealing with global challenges such as climate and food crises, and world’s economic recession
To disseminate TRADE Hub findings and research results.
Interpretation in Bahasa will be available.
