Indonesia, as the world’s largest producer of palm oil, has received much attention in recent years particularly from the global community concerning the sustainability of its palm oil production. The rapid growth of palm oil production globally has at times come at the expense of forested areas. Fifty-six per cent of the oil palm plantations in Indonesia have replaced forests (Koh & Wilcove 2008), most significantly in the provinces of North Sumatra, Riau and Jambi, and the south-western borders of Kalimantan (Romijin et al. 2013). Continued deforestation adds significant environmental pressures on ecologically sensitive areas, with extensive impacts on biodiversity, habitat fragmentation, land degradation and soil erosion. To address the concern of the international community, the Government of Indonesia (GoI) has taken steps towards building a greener economy that promotes growth, equity, improved livelihood and environmental integrity including in the palm oil sector. Aiming to support the government’s actions, UNDP has been working together with the Indonesian Ministry of Agriculture to achieve the country’s goals of sustainable palm oil production through the Sustainable Palm Oil Initiative (SPOI). The initiative comprises of several objectives: (1) Strengthening smallholder capacity through increased productivity and better environmental management (2) Supporting the Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil (ISPO) system (3) Facilitating social responsibility through local communities and enhancing mediation (4) Reinforcing the ISPO framework by clarifying ISPO standards for wider acceptance, and (5) Establishing multi-stakeholder platforms on sustainable palm oil. Starting in 2015, the SPOI project and the UNDP is working with the Ministry of Agriculture and the Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs to develop a National Action Plan (NAP) for Sustainable Palm Oil. The NAP focuses on addressing the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) of the challenges in the palm oil sector. It is focusing on 4 work streams: (1) building smallholder capacity, (2) environmental management and monitoring, (3) Conflict Resolution and Governance, and (4) Increasing ISPO Certification and Market Access. To increase the NAPs chance for acceptance and sustainable success, it needs an enthusiastic and committed Stakeholder Engagement Officer. The Stakeholder Engagement Officer (SEF) will report to the Forum Kelapa Sawit Berkelanjutan (FOKSBI) Platform Manager and keep this person updated on meetings, progress and deliverables. The SEF will also work with the SPOI Project Manager and with the National Project Director.
