AWS Spotlight on Indonesia: Driving Good Water Stewardship in Landscape & Jurisdictional Approaches in Palm Oil & Natural Rubber
AWS Spotlight on Indonesia: Driving Good Water Stewardship in Landscape & Jurisdictional Approaches in Palm Oil & Natural Rubber webinar is the first AWS Spotlight webinar of the ISEAL Innovations Fund project 2020-2022 ‘Boosting sustainability practice and performance at the landscape level through good water stewardship'.
There is a growing need for strengthening jurisdictional and landscape approaches and sustainability standards on water, as water as an asset isn’t valued sufficiently which is leading to overlooked risks. This relevance and urgency for strengthening jurisdictional and landscape approaches and standards on water, and to pilot this in the context of Indonesia.

In this first webinar will introducing the project to Alliance for Water Stewardship members and partners interested in or working on landscape and jurisdictional approaches, particularly in agriculture, and creating awareness and interest from a wider audience of leading players in jurisdictional and landscape approaches to introduce our focus on water stewardship as part of these.
