Sustainable production

Solidaridad has been at the forefront of promoting yield intensification through the implementation of Best Management Practices (BMP) to improve oil palm farm and mill profitability and sustainability. Learning sites have been established in Ghana, Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire to provide skills to improve knowledge of the farmers, producers and processors, as well as increase yields, farm productivity and profitability.

The Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification programmes are used as means to mainstream sustainable practices. A business incubator implemented in Ghana provided small and medium-sized businesses with capital, business development services and coaching. The achievements stand to receive impact funding for massive scale up of the model across West Africa.
