Project Improving impact of biomass production
Improving the social-economic impact of biomass production
NCIV implemented a project , in cooperation with the Indigenous Peoples Alliance of the Archipelago (AMAN), Oxfam Novib and CREM on improving the social-economic impact of biomass production for local communities and indigenous peoples. This project was focusing on palm oil in West and Central Kalimantan, Indonesia.
This project, implemented since July 2010, and financed by Oxfam Novib and the Global Sustainable Biomass Programme of NL Agency aimed to increase the capacity of indigenous peoples to uphold their rights in relation to palm oil production and /or to increase their benefits as small-scale producers of palm oil. It also aimed to develop verifiable indicators and guidance for implementing and monitoring social criteria for sustainable biomass production in cooperation with indigenous peoples in West- and Central Kalimantan in Indonesia. The Dutch NTA8080 certification system for sustainable biomass was selected by NL Agency as the normative reference for this project.
Activities of this project included:
- Interviews with stakeholders in the Netherlands and in Indonesia
- A desk study of literature on palm oil and indigenous peoples in Indonesia
- Field visits to indigenous communities in West and Central Kalimantan
- Comparing NTA8080 with other certification systems and with a report on indicators for indigenous peoples
- Training and consultation of indigenous peoples from West and Central Kalimantan (5-8 November 2012)
- A survey among auditors and companies
- A dialogue with stakeholders on the main findings of the project
The summary report of this project was presented in a multi-stakeholder workshop on 27 June 2013 in Utrecht.
The dialogue with stakeholders and the survey were conducted in cooperation with the project Working towards sustainable biomass production in Mato Grosso, Brazil, which is implemented by Oxfam Novib, in cooperation with NCIV, CREM and FORMAD, a local partner in Brazil. This project is funded by NL Agency under their Sustainable Biomass Import programme.Â
