The National Oil Palm Strategy and Action Plan (NOPSAP) of Liberia is a sectoral initiative developed through a multi-stakeholder process facilitated by the National Oil Palm Platform of Liberia (NOPPOL). The strategy, which was launched by the Ministry of Agriculture in April 2022, provides the opportunity for multi-stakeholder collaboration for addressing key deforestation, land tenure, community livelihoods and labour issues while supporting sustainable development of the oil palm sector in Liberia. The strategy offers a credible opportunity for oil palm companies and other key actors to meet their sustainability commitments.
The ‘Guidance on Engagement Principles’ is a ten-step guide developed by Proforest’s Production Landscape Team with NOPPOL. The guide is based on Proforest’s experience of working with supply chain oil palm companies and NOPPOL’s deep understanding of the NOPSAP. The guidance is intended to help oil palm companies engage effectively with the NOPSAP and associated initiatives to deliver on their commitments.
