OIL PALM MORATORIUM APPROVED!
Updated: Aug 11, 2019
To counter the encroachment of oil palm plantations, we have entered into negotiations directly with the various municipalities in Southern Palawan, so to encourage them to pass their own municipal resolutions against any further development of oil palm plantations. On May 2015, we did succeed in having one of such resolutions (no. 2015-072) being passed by the Municipality of Quezon and, after months of strenuous negotiations, on 10 October 2018, CALG did succeed in influencing the Municipality of Rizal to pass its own resolution against the expansion of oil palm plantations. Given the enormous pressure from both foreigner and local entrepreneurs on ICCAs in Rizal, we do appreciate and welcome this new and positive step being taken by the municipal government.
