Palm oil and biodiversity conservation

With the disastrous impacts of palm oil on biodiversity from a global perspective, there are no simple solutions.

At the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Hawai‘i in September 2016, IUCN’s Members established the IUCN Oil Palm Task Force to undertake a situation analysis on oil palm and biodiversity conservation in the context of sustainable development. The task force released its report  in June 2018.
