PhD Research 6: Somjai Nupueng

Arrangements for governance towards environmental sustainability and equity in Thailand.

Somjai Nupueng will analyze existing and future governance mechanisms and practices that impact the sustainability of palm oil production, processing and trade in Thailand. The existing national mechanisms and practices will be studied in order to determine how they relate to transboundary governance dynamics through different private and governmental initiatives, and with actual practices at the local level. On the basis of this assessment, multiple options to enhance environmental sustainability and equity in the palm oil supply chain will be identified and compared.
