National Action Plan


FoKSBI Activites

FoKSBI's regular technical working group meetings incorporate input from an array of stakeholders including the private sector and oil palm companies, civil society such as environmental NGOs and associations representing millions of farmers, and the government. The aim of these multistakeholder discussions is to identify and agree on ways to maintain palm oil’s economic benefits whilst ensuring environmental conservation and best practice. The outcome of the technical working group meetings will form a draft national action plan for sustainable palm oil, which will be finalised and agreed on during a series of plenary meetings and public consultation opportunities.
