RSPO is currently developing a more user-friendly version of the PalmGHG calculator and will be organizing a 1 day workshop to introduce and test the proposed new version (Please note that the PalmGHG calculator (Beta version 1a) is largely unchanged and the proposed new version refers mainly to the user interface).

The workshop will be held on 11th November 2013 at Santika Premier Dyandra Hotel & Convention, Medan, Indonesia. 
There is no registration fee but seats are on a first come first serve basis and subject to capacity. The workshop will be conducted in English. For more details and to sign up for the workshop, please contact Melissa Chin ([email protected]) by 28th October 2013.

This workshop is supported by CIRAD (Agricultural Research for Development).
