When Suhaili, a smallholder farmer in the Jambi Province of Indonesia, was introduced to RSPO in 2014, his expectations about certification were exceeded. In addition to learning best management practices and being able to expand his palm oil plantation, Suhaili developed a river conservation programme, which benefits his plantation and the local village. He explained that he felt proud to not only just be harvesting crops, but also to be helping improve the environment. To learn more about how RSPO Credits inspired Suhaili to lead a river conservation programme in his village, watch the video below.
