CPOPC SHORT STORY WRITING COMPETITION ON SMALLHOLDERS’ LIFE.
The oil palm smallholders play a significant role in the industry. Globally, 50% of palm oil is produced by smallholders. They face many limitations, including low capacity, limited access to financial sources, seeds, and fertilizers while play a substantive part in the supply chain of palm oil and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
CPOPC holds a story writing competition on the topic of smallholders which consists of real stories about smallholders’ challenges and achievements in the palm oil industry. The story writing competition aims not only to appreciate the role of smallholders in providing affordable vegetable oil for food and energy safety but also maintaining a strong social and ecological pillar for sustainable purposes.
