Defining sustainability in oil palm production: An analysis of existing sustainable agriculture & oil palm initiatives
2003 | Proforest
In this, the second technical discussion paper for the Round Table on Sustainable Oil Palm, information is provided about existing initiatives which seek to define or implement 'sustainability' in some form for oil palm plantations. The paper examines the degree to which these existing initiatives (from both within the oil palm sector and outside) address the key issues of sustainability for oil palm production. Options for defining 'sustainability' and assessing its implementation are discussed.
