From private sector industry partners in Guatemala to smallholder farmers in Honduras and cooperatives in Nicaragua, Solidaridad is committed to facilitating vertical production of oil palm. Mesoamerica has the potential to become a leader in sustainable palm oil production.
After 4 years of engagement with the Honduran and Guatemala palm oil sector, MAPA grew to include 100% of the Nicaraguan palm oil sector, and a significant portion of the Mexican sector. A particular focus on the establishment of Farmer Field Schools, and achieving economy of scale through the Paisajes Sostenbiles (PaSos) initiative in Northern Honduras, show great promise to bolster the improvement and sustainability of smallholder productivity as well as bridging the RSPO certification gap.
