Post - Rio +20 – Where does Palm Oil and REDD Stand?
Dr. Elizabeth Philip

At the close of the Rio+20 Earth Summit, heads of state and ministers from more than 190 nations agreed to set global sustainable development goals (SDGs) and other measures to strengthen global environmental
management, tighten protection of the oceans, improve food security and promote a ‘green economy’.
Integrating forest into sustainable development objectives is inevitable. The palm oil industry can play an important role in fulfilling the SDGs and promoting the green economy. This paper will highlight some of the potential areas where both forest and the palm oil industry contribute to the SDGs.
