Indigenous Peoples' Views on Sustainable Palm Oil in Malaysia

Thursday, October 13, 2022 - 15:00 to 16:30

Venue: Dalgas Have, Room DH.V.2.88

Presentations and debate
Oil palm production is vital to Southeast Asian economies and livelihoods. However, there are no rigorous and reproducible tests of how well the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification guarantees indigenous peoples' freedom, livelihoods, and outcomes in palm-growing regions. Is the Global North ensuring the sustainability of the products it consumes, or is it glossing over the full consequences and impact of our consumption habits? This event will examine how the RSPO can improve to protect indigenous rights.

Organisers: The International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs (IWGIA) and the Centre for Business and Development Studies (CBDS).
