Understanding dynamics in global financial, informational and commodity flows on palm oil (OIL PALM PhD project 7)

This subproject analysis the existing transboundary palm oil investment and commodity flows and networks and their potential contribution to making the palm oil sector more sustainable and equitable. The focus will be on the global and regional flows and networks but with the intention to better understand how these influence (and are influenced by) situations in Thailand and Indonesia.


In this subproject the existing relevant transboundary flows and networks (such as financial flows, RSPO, WTO, AFTA, etc.) will be studied to determine where they overlap and/or compete and how they can in the future support environmental sustainability and equity. These transboundary dynamics encompass public, private company and civil society dimensions. The assessment will be realized by connecting these global dynamics with the national and local dynamics in Indonesia and Thailand.
