Abstract

The Biodiversity in Plantation Landscapes manual, part of the ‘Biodiversity for Busy Managers‘ initiative was visualised by Wild Asia and subsequently supported by the Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) to inspire and educate plantation managers to start incorporating biodiversity principles into the management of their plantations to protect their natural areas from depletion, as well as to develop useful and practical resources for those on the front line of land development. Furthermore, this manual also aims to make the recent emphasis on biodiversity accessible and practical for those ‘on the ground’. The manual was launched during the opening ceremony of the International Palm Oil Sustainability Conference (IPOSC) 2012 in Putrajaya, Malaysia. The conference primarily centred on the discussion of the latest developments and issues related to creating a sustainable palm oil industry in Malaysia.
