The participants were:
- Oil Palm Research Center - Cenipalma
- National Federation of Biofuels - Fedebiocombustibles
- National Agricultural Rural Planning Unit - UPRA
- Palmeras Santana
- Agropecuaria Santa Maria

- and others.
The main objective of the workshop was to contribute to the understanding of the resources dynamics in the Orinoquia Region. The participation of interested parties was very valuable to determine the main aspects that might influence the future expansion of oil palm in the territory. The participants discussed aspects related to integral and responsible planning of the palm ecosystem. Using the “Problem Tree” analysis, we could identify context elements of ecosystem territory services, as well as the relation and interaction between actors and relevant resources of palm landscape.
The main opportunity for improvement found by the group was the lack of comprehensive and responsible planning for the oil palm socio-ecosystem in the Orinoquía.
