Team Europe Initiative on Deforestation-free Value Chains

Sustainability of
Indonesian and Malaysian
palm oil

About the project

The KAMI project provides support for strengthened and constructive dialogue between EU, Malaysian and Indonesian stakeholders on the sustainability of the palm oil value chain. To that end, KAMI supports multi-stakeholder processes to share objective information on the sustainable use of natural resources at scale with a specific focus on palm oil. Through exchange of objective information, the project informs policy and planning processes and works to support supply chain actors in making sustainable sourcing and investment decisions. By working at scale, KAMI aims to strengthen environmental, social and governance frameworks to cover all supply chain actors, including those outside certified supply chains where many smallholders remain.
The project, which is funded by the European Union, commenced in August 2020 with a budget of 4.5 million euros and will run until September 2024.

Providing technical assistance to enhance the partner countries’ platforms and initiatives towards increased sustainability of the palm oil value chain
