On the 12th General Assembly in 2015, RSPO adopted resolution 6F to develop a comprehensive Smallholder Strategy.

In the course of developing the strategy, RSPO will gather inputs from its key stakeholders in all RSPO key regions Southeast Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe.
What is the purpose of the workshop? :

  • To provide an opportunity to gather input from stakeholders on the strategic direction based on regional context and develop a comprehensive strategy to address the challenges faced by smallholders; and
  • To develop a 5-year Action Plan Framework from the comprehensive strategy.

Who should attend: Smallholder organisations, Oil Palm Companies, Government, Environmental & Social NGO, Manufacturers, Processors, Retailers and Banks​.​
