WAA 12 – Sustainable Management for Oil Palm Growers


Course Overview

Wild Asia’s Academy for Sustainable Management is a leadership programme for owners and manager of oil palm. This course has been designed to prepare participants to be both RSPO- and MSPO-ready by giving them the tools, understanding and practical examples to help them understand how to incorporate sustainable management in their own operations.

This course aims to provide the fundamental understanding of sustainable palm oil (SPO) management from the basis of quality and sustainability standards, as specified by MSPO and RSPO requirements. By the end of this course, the growers will gain a better understanding of practical steps and be BOTH RSPO and MSPO ready. In completing all sessions producers will be well placed to embark on a certification programme.

Who is this Course for

  • Small Growers (Individuals or SME) of 50-500 ha or larger holdings (above 500 ha)
  • Small Growers (Individuals or SME) of larger holdings (above 500 ha)
  • Medium Growers, with more than one Estate Unit (above 500 ha)

The course was designed to give a basic understanding and also to provide templates and exercises that help owners and management to better understand how their own operations are currently managed.
