Indonesia’s oil palm farmers hold the key to balancing growth and sustainability when given access to the essential tools needed for their crops to prosper. One vital resource is financial capital and the knowledge to manage it efficiently, which consequently can mitigate environmental impacts. The Indonesia Palm Oil Platform (FoKSBI) provides the appropriate forum to devise solutions to ensure producers get access to sustainable financing options.
FoKSBI is a government led multi-stakeholder forum with the aim of creating a National Action Plan for the sustainable development of palm oil in Indonesia. UNDP’s Green Commodities Programme fosters National Commodity Platforms like these around the world. These platforms are local initiatives, led and owned by government and driven by participants.
