Biodiversity and Oil Palm – Discussion Meeting
Title: BIODIVERSITY AND OIL PALM: INTEGRATING SCIENCE AND POLICY- a scientific discussion meeting
When: 8 April 2008, 6pm. Doors open 5pm.
Venue: The Zoological Society of London (ZSL), Meeting Rooms, Regents Park, NW1 4RY
“The economic value of palm oil ensures it is here to stay, but the crisis threatening biodiversity and the environment demands immediate action. Guidelines have been produced on producing ‘sustainable’ palm oil. But recommendations concerning biodiversity impacts are vague and difficult to implement. Solutions require dialogue, and it is with this in mind that this meeting is convening representatives from Asian industry and government, conservation and science to discuss:
- How is biodiversity impacted by oil palm?
- What are the issues for industry in mitigating impacts on biodiversity?
- How can stakeholders work together to minimise conflict?
