RSPO Africa Roadshow 2017

Venue: Mensvic Hotel, Accra, Ghana

Date: 9th October 2017

 

The RSPO will be organising the Africa Roadshow on 9th October 2017 in Accra, Ghana to engage and update the stakeholders in the region on the developments and progress of RSPO.

 

This roadshow agenda will highlight the recent developments such as the Supply Chain Certification Standards, P&C Certification, and Palm Trace. In addition to these, the new strategies and initiatives to accelerate the inclusion of smallholders in the sustainable palm oil supply chain will also be discussed.

 

We encourage all members to attend the roadshow as the event will also provide the opportunity for stakeholders to engage with the RSPO and raise concerns from the region.

 

To participate in this event, please contact the RSPO Technical Manager for Africa at elikplim.dziwornu@rspo.org
