Siak Pelalawan Landscape Programme: How Companies Collaborate and Engage
Prepared by Terra Komunika for Proforest
The Jurisdictional Approach (JA) is distinct in its focus on administrative areas and the importance of leadership from local government, working collaboratively with other key stakeholder groups. Such local government engagement is appealing for the private sector, as it holds the potential to address systemic issues that affect the implementation of their corporate sustainability commitments.
This case study looks into private sector engagement in the Siak Pelalawan Landscape Programme (SPLP), which currently comprises eight palm oil producers, traders, and downstream buyers, facilitated by Proforest and Daemeter Consulting, in the Siak and Pelalawan districts in Riau province, Indonesia. Several key lessons for future private sector engagement in jurisdictional initiatives were identified.
