The RSPO Africa Roadshow is an awareness raising and capacity building programme aimed at supporting best practice in planning and expansion of oil palm plantations in West and Central Africa.
The programme provides a series of briefing notes, available in English and French, to raise awareness about the the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) guidelines on responsible oil palm and palm oil expansion, and the appropriate use of the High Conservation Value (HCV) concept.
