Technical Support

small_producers_header1

One of our longest standing areas of interest has been with the palm oil sector. Since 2008, we introduced our Technical Support Programme, specifically designed at finding technical solutions to promote sustainability across the entire oil palm supply chain. Wild Asia’s technical support provides professional consulting and advisory services in four core work streams:

  • Consulting or Advisory Support (evaluation and management support); Social and Environmental Assessments (HCV, SEIA, EIA);
  • Risk Assessments and Assurance Programmes (supply chain mapping, due diligence or supporting internal assurance programmes);
  • Training & Capacity Building (raising awareness amongst consultants, management, work teams).
We are committed to supporting both large and small organisations, including small farmers, to meet the requirements of buyers or International Standards (such as RSPO or similar standards). We have tailored our work to be practical, implementable and relevant to not just producers but to other players in the supply chain; this includes buyers, traders and retailers.
