This post-doc project reflects and stimulates reflection on sustainable pathways during all stages of the program, by linking and synthesizing findings from different PhD research projects and providing feedback to individual research projects - working in close collaboration with the programme coordinator for this purpose.
This post-doc project contributes to the integration of research efforts at program level and to the identification of sustainable pathways. It will mainly contribute to the two main objectives of the SUSPENSE research programme:
to identify sustainable pathways for the production, processing and governing of palm oil;
to enable different stakeholders to contribute to a more environmentally sustainable and equitable palm oil sector.
For this purpose theories on flows, networks and systems to unravel the complex dynamics of the palm oil sector will be combined. Through action research stakeholders will be engaged in seeking sustainable pathways.
