Indonesia is one of the world’s largest producers of palm oil and has received much attention in recent years particularly from the global community, concerning the sustainability of palm oil production. The Government of Indonesia is taking steps towards building a greener economy that promotes growth, equity, improved livelihood and environmental integrity including in the palm oil sector.
In order to promote sustainable palm oil production and practices in Indonesia, the Ministry of Agriculture, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and several multinational companies have launched the Sustainable Palm Oil Initiative (SPOI). The SPOI aims at improving the capacity of oil palm smallholders and conserving natural resources. The SPOI also works in collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment and Forestry as well as other relevant government institutions to achieve the goals of the initiative.
The UNDP has been working together with the Ministry of Agriculture to develop and organize five key components of SPOI to achieve the country’s goals of sustainable palm oil, manifested in National Action Plan on Sustainable Palm Oil (NAP-SPO), which include: (1) strengthening smallholders capacity through increased productivity and better environmental management, (2) enhancing biodiversity conservation, as well as mitigate and monitor greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, (3) facilitating social responsibility through empowering local communities and enhancing mediation systems, (4) reinforcing the ISPO framework by improving ISPO standards for wider acceptance and improved market access, and (5) establishing national and sub-national multi-stakeholder platforms on sustainable palm oil Indonesia. The NAP SPO will utilize various discussions and dialogues with relevant stakeholders at national, provincial and district level in close coordination with the Implementation Team.
In order to ensure quality result of the activities, especially on the procurement process which is in line with UNDP regulation system; UNDP looked at the need of staff to support the procurement of internal and external stakeholders.
