La troisième table ronde de RSPO-RT3, à Singapour en novembre 2005
Cirad, Département des cultures pérennes, TA 80 / PS3, 34398
Montpellier Cedex 5, France
The RSPO third roundtable meeting on sustainable palm oil (RT3) was the occasion for the official launch of principles and criteria adopted by the initiative to promote sustainable palm oil production and consumption. The problems raised by implementing those principles and criteria were widely debated in the main assembly or in break–out groups. The deliberations emphasized that all RSPO stakeholders needed to take an active role in the initiative, which should also be open to other categories of stakeholders: governments, research, certification organizations, etc. Over a two-year transition phase, 14 voluntary members are to test the feasibility of such implementation on a true scale. A task force has been set up to adapt the principles and criteria to the particular case of smallholders.
Key words: palm oil / sustainability / principles / criteria / implementation / smallholders
