Calling for Proposal:
Consultancy for FAIR Workshop Facilitator
at Pelalawan, Riau
Freedom of choice, Accountability, Improvement of benefits, Respect of
rights (FAIR) and Green Growth is one of Oxfam project which focus on
promoting an alternative governance model on palm oil plantation. Oxfam
together with SPKS would like to establish multi-functional landscapes in
which small holders - their communities, local authorities, and plantation
companies have applied participatory land use planning in Pelalawan sub
district, Riau province. This approach will result in combinations of cash
crops such as oil palm, local food crops, and protection of forest and
peat land. Small holders and their communities, both women and men, will
benefit from livelihoods of their choice enabling them to ensure food
security, safeguarded land rights and diversified income.
For the demonstration projects we envision a strong interplay between
“horizontal” and “vertical” interactions. With horizontal we are referring
to participatory, multi-stakeholder landscape level -planning and
management. At the sub-district level, the interaction between palm oil
companies and small holder suppliers is taken as a starting point to
involve other local stakeholders, including the local authorities. Joint
mapping and planning will result in more balanced and efficient land use,
with the landscape functions in the right place. With vertical we mean
that various (palm oil) value chain partners that source from this
landscape incentives the review and changes. One buyer and/or trader (such
as our prospective partners in one demonstration project: Unilever and
Musim Mas) will take the lead and also involve other milling companies and
buyers/traders. Moreover, the private sector partners also provide the
channels to promote the demonstration project findings and feed
up-scaling. In addition to involving the commodity value chain partners,
financial sector participation is foreseen. Once the preconditions have
been met we anticipate this will enable the development of specific
investment plans (notably for small holder replanting).
The workshop objective is to define fit model of FAIR to be demonstrated
