SNV Netherlands Development Organization

SNV is an international not-for-profit development organisation, working in 38 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. SNV specializes in supporting the resourcefulness of development actors by developing local capacities, improving performance and services, strengthening governance systems, helping to create access for excluded groups and by making markets work for the poor. Our global team of advisors use their specialist sector and change expertise in Agriculture, Renewable Energy and WASH to facilitate sustainable change in the livelihoods of millions of people living in poverty.

Solidarity Sourcing Program Implementation Berbak

SNV was working with a consortium of international and local partners in the Berbak landscape in Jambi Sumatra to develop deforestation-free palm oil supply chains. Together with L’Oreal, SNV aims to continue that work and further scale this project to include in total 12,500 farmers. The main aim is to divert expansion of palm from the remaining forests and peatlands in the Berbak landscape and provide enhanced and alternative economic opportunities for communities. This approach is aligned with L’Oreal’s Solidarity Sourcing Programme.

The Project will aim to support independent smallholders in improving their production practices to prevent deforestation to happen in the area and to increase their livelihoods. The primary beneficiaries of the program are Independent oil palm smallholders on mineral soils who are facing a loss of income due to ageing trees, who need replanting within the next 5 years. They will be assisted through training and inputs to implement more sustainable agriculture practices in order to increase production and income.

Secondary beneficiaries and partners are government agencies and private sector who will be assisted by the program with technical support and data collection about the conditions in the landscape to support policy, planning and decision-making. The project will aim to ensure that women are given equal access to project investments for which we have set a 30% target for this as a minimum. In addition, the project will give special attention to targeting vulnerable groups; the social and gender surveys that will be undertaken will help to tailor specific targets per village.

Within the wider Berbak landscape the project will focus its interventions on restricted areas in the west and southwest: the smallholder palm oil interventions will focus on independent smallholder farmers in the Petaling and Bahar areas southwest of the Berbak landscape.
