The International Palm Oil Sustainability Conference 2020 (IPOSC 2020) is MPOC’s biannual conference that highlights the sustainability challenges and opportunities in the Malaysian palm oil industry to stakeholders involved in the palm oil sustainability debate. This year, the 6th IPOSC 2020 will be hosted by MPOC on a virtual platform.
In conjunction with the World Elephant Day on 12 August, we are organizing a webinar focusing on the conservation initiatives and efforts undertaken to address human-wildlife conflicts in Malaysia through collaboration with the palm oil industry. Four panellists have confirmed to present their unbiased views based on their areas of expertise, which will be moderated by MPOC. The topics to be discussed are:
- Making Biodiversity Conservation in Oil Palm Landscapes Better
- Biodiversity Conservation: Turning Conflict into Co-existence – an Asian Experience
