Sustainable Palm Oil and Climate Change: The Way Forward Through Mitigation and Adaptation
Extreme weather events and anomalies are occurring more frequently even as the world prepares for COP21 in Paris, France, which aims to reach consensus on fixing targets for GHG emission reduction. This is a grim reminder of the urgency for us to address and tackle climate change. The growing number of large companies, including those within the agro-industry, farmers and other stakeholders announcing new commitments in adopting sustainable practices to lower their carbon footprint is encouraging and gives us hope for the future.
Climate change is a reality
Although agriculture has a relatively lower energy consumption compared to other industries, its contribution to GHG emission is significant, and forms around 25% of global emissions. These arise mainly from land use change, fertiliser utilization and waste production. However, the practice of agriculture which has the capacity to fix carbon in the biomass and in the soil, is also recognized as the only human activity that can play a positive role in mitigating climate change.
It is expected that COP21 will recognize this important capacity of agriculture to contribute to climate change mitigation. We want to drive efforts in making the palm oil industry a leader in climate change mitigation in the tropical agricultural sector.
Leveraging on the success of ICOPE 2014, which recognized the potential of the palm oil sector to become a model for tomorrow’s sustainable agriculture, ICOPE 2016 will focus on the potential of the palm oil industry to mitigate as well as adapt to climate change.
ICOPE 2014 saw the attendance of more than 450 participants from 20 countries. ICOPE 2016 is once again inviting concerned stakeholders, including scientists and practitioners, NGOs and government institutions, small farmers and the agro-industry, to come together to deliberate on potential and practical options in mitigating and adapting to climate change.
ICOPE 2016 will include presentations, discussions and debates on the following key topics:
A panel discussion about slash and burn issues will be held as part of ICOPE 2016. There will be also General Lectures, Technical Lectures and Posters presentations from reputable scientists. Among them are:
ICOPE remains the major forum in which to highlight environmental issues and share experiences in order to identify solutions that will benefit the environment and the industry. More than ever, ICOPE 2016 aims to be the platform for innovation and where scientific approaches lead to viable alternatives that can be put into practice.
General Lectures on key topics
General Lectures will be held during the conference. The lectures will cover the key topics and will be delivered by reputable scientists or members of leading institutions.
Presentations and discussions of the key topics will be conducted in the Technical Sessions, with various papers presented by stakeholders such as Research Institutes, Palm Oil Growers and Millers, Government Agencies, Banks and NGOs.
While the oral presentations and discussions will focus on climate change mitigation and adaptation, we also welcome proposals for poster sessions related to other aspects of palm oil production and the environment, for e.g. biodiversity and pollution risk & control.
