In October 2015, the Sabah State Cabinet passed a policy that all palm oil production in Sabah will achieve Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification by 2025. Forever Sabah embarked on a process to engage and organize independent smallholders in twenty villages in the pilot districts of Telupid, Tongod, Beluran, and Kinabatangan (TTBK) to assess their readiness for the certification process. Besides promoting productivity while reducing negative environmental and social impacts in the state of Sabah, the key needs identified are Good Management Practices (GMP), training and support, as well as access to the local and international markets.
