The Endless Palm Oil Debate by IHS


Controversy and strong opinion are currently dominating public discourse on oil palm cultivation. Understandable, since its outstanding economic potential stands in stark contrast to its reported social and environmental impact. One solution to these disputes: disseminate accurate information, free of oversimplification, including on the hot button topics of boycotting palm oil and deforestation. Professor Alain Rival, Regional Director for CIRAD, presents an updated overview on both conflicts and ongoing practical solutions.
