Training Programme for Conflict Resolution through Bilateral Negotiation


20 Oct 2014 - 22 Oct 2014



RSPO will be organising a 3-day basic Conflict Resolution through Bilateral Negotiation training in collaboration with the Indonesian National Mediation Centre (Pusat Mediasi Nasional). The purpose of this training is to impart basic negotiation and communication techniques and skills to participants. This training programme will be tailor-made to RSPO’s perspectives. To make it even more relevant to RSPO, references will be made to the RSPO’s Principles and Criteria (P&C), in particular P&C 2.2, 2.3, 6.4, 7.3, 7.5, 7.6.

Participants will also be engaged in role plays which would be useful in learning and understanding the practical aspects of negotiation and conflict resolution. Participants will be taught the basis of interest-based facilitative negotiation, communication skills and approaches to understanding, managing and resolving conflicts. They will be taught how to approach legal and ethical considerations and insights into how to manage power imbalances. Such negotiations skills can be used within the workplace as well as in all aspects of management of the plantation business and fulfilment of RSPO Principles and Criteria.

The training will be held as follows: 

20 – 22 October 2014

Pusat Mediasi Nasional, Gedung Adi Puri Wisma Subud, Jl. RS

Fatmawati no. 52, Jakarta

To ensure effective and maximum contact with trainers and coaches, the number of participants will be limited to 21 pax only. Whilst RSPO will cover the training fees, participants are required to make their own travelling and accommodation arrangements.


Who should attend?

The training programme is open to employees of RSPO members in Indonesia, in particular those who regularly, or have the potential to regularly face conflict situations resulting from non-compliance of RSPO P&C.

Considering the limited space we have, it will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
