Background: Oil palm cultivation is a principal driver of tropical land-use change and deforestation. Oil palm provides significant earnings for countries, corporations and smallholders, but often at great environmental and social costs within and beyond the landscapes where it is grown.
Project’s purpose: The overall vision of the OPAL project was to improve the management of oil palm landscapes across Asia, Africa and Latin America. We concentrated our work in the three countries that were part of the project: Indonesia, Cameroon and Colombia. All three countries are producing palm oil, but in different contexts.
