Do you have a sustainable sourcing policy or a responsible investment policy to support smallholder farmers? Do you already work on projects with smallholder farmers and have experiences to share? Are you brimming with ideas on how we can better engage with smallholder farmers and looking for a platform to test your ideas?
If answers to any (or all) of the questions are yes or if you are simply interested in knowing more about smallholder farmers, please join our interactive workshop and help us develop a comprehensive smallholder strategy!
Purpose of the workshop is to…
- Share experiences from the different projects on the ground and learn from each other.
- Discuss the challenges faced by smallholders and identify ways in which the barriers to certification can be minimised.
- Explore different mechanisms in which the markets canincentivise, support and/or source from smallholders.
Based on the stakeholder input gathered during the workshop, a comprehensive smallholder strategy will be developed to provide a framework for RSPO and our members to better engage with smallholder farmers.
Attendance is free but seats are limited, please register by sending an email to [email protected] before September 23, 2016 to reserve your spot.
We look forward to your active participation in the workshop!
