CIFOR Research published: Current Practices and Innovations in Smallholder Palm Oil Finance in Indonesia and Malaysia
Financial Access, together with SNV Netherlands Development Organisation, has undertaken a profound research on past and current policies and financing schemes for oil palm smallholders in Indonesia and Malaysia and prepared a research paper and an info brief which have been published by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) this month.
The report proposes potential models to increase the mobilization of long-term finance to smallholders in the palm oil sector. Furthermore, it identifies and reflects on the key enabling conditions that would help overcome the bottlenecks in smallholder long-term financing and create an enabling environment for sustainable oil palm investments.
