Smallholder palm oil production in Central Kalimantan – Assessing scope for improving environmental and economic performance

New York

Oil palm production contributes in important ways to economic growth and people’s livelihoods in Indonesia, and hence can support the transition to a more bio-based economy if social, economic and environmental trade-offs are adequately addressed. Such tradeoffs have become most obvious among small-scale oil palm producers. In this landscape talk we showcase results from a comprehensive Cost-Benefit-Analysis (CBA) of independent smallholder palm oil production systems in Central Kalimantan and highlight constraints and determinants affecting productivity and environmental performance with a subsequent showcase of potential market-based intervention options.
