Reflecting on the past five years (2013-2018), since the RSPO Smallholder Support Fund (RSSF) was established, the Secretariat is pleased to share that this fund has provided funding to programs supporting 18,100 smallholders across five major oil palm producing regions: Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Africa and Latin America.
Why was RSSF formed and how does it help smallholders?
From 2013-2018, RSSF received a total of 101 applications and has approved funding for 39 smallholder projects. A total of RM 20.1 million was disbursed to smallholders during this period, 80% of which was utilised for Certification activities, followed by Impact activities (19%) and Audits (1%). The RSSF has to date benefitted 18,100 smallholders, who collectively manage a production area covering 105,898 hectares of land in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Africa and Latin America.
