Reinforcing EU-Indonesia and EU-Malaysia partnerships by supporting national processes and international dialogue on sustainable natural resource use with focus on palm oil.
Through KAMI, we provide timely support for strengthened dialogue between stakeholders in the EU, Indonesia and Malaysia on the sustainability of the palm oil value chain. The three-year project, funded by the European Union, commenced in August 2020 with a budget of EUR 4.5 million.
We support multi-stakeholder advisory committees to inform objective palm oil sustainability performance monitoring at scale, thereby providing reliable information to build trust and inform supply chain actors in making purchasing decisions.
The project encourages all stakeholders – including subnational governments, large companies, smallholders and mid-sized players – to progress towards and better demonstrate sustainability in the context of EU and consumer country regulations and demands, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and national laws and circumstances. In this way, public policy and market-related objectives can be achieved.
KAMI means “us/we” in both the Indonesian and Malaysian languages. It stands for “Keberlanjutan sAwit Malaysia dan Indonesia”, that is “sustainability of Malaysian and Indonesian palm oil”
KAMI builds upon and supports the Terpercaya Initiative, which works through the Terpercaya Advisory Committee to establish district-level sustainability tracking capability in Indonesia.
We support policy dialogues between stakeholders in the EU, Indonesia and Malaysia on the sustainability of the palm oil value chain.
We provide technical assistance to enhance exchange of objective information on sustainability as a foundation for strengthened policy dialogue and responsible purchasing decisions.
We equip actors involved in EU, Indonesia, and Malaysia policy dialogues on palm oil sustainability with relevant information, and support dialogue and engagement among national and subnational state and non-state actors.
