Palm oil and Environmental Sustainability: Facing Food, Climate and Energy Crises

Palm oil and Environmental Sustainability: Facing Food, Climate and Energy Crises

30 Aug 2022 10.00-16.00 GMT+7, Hotel Borobudur, Jakarta and Online

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:

  1. To understand recent phenomena and complexities in the palm oil trade, such as price fluctuations
  2. To discuss strategies for dealing with global challenges such as climate and food crises, and world’s economic recession
  3. To disseminate TRADE Hub findings and research results.

Interpretation in Bahasa will be available.
