​Our objective is to improve the management of oil palm landscapes across Asia, Africa and Latin America. We are doing so by engaging stakeholders and boundary partners at regional, national, and local levels with plausible scenarios of oil palm development. These scenarios are developed through integrated platforms that merge the social, economic, and ecological drivers shaping oil palm development. We are assessing various outcomes of scenarios in terms of their implications for biodiversity, ecosystem services, and human wellbeing.
