Small Scale Funding Agreement (Ssfa)

Informal partnerships aim to achieve results for the least protective and are set up when cooperation does not require formal agreement. An informal partnership could, for example, be used when organizations cooperate to identify child rights issues, which need to be addressed at the country level, which need to be jointly represented or knowledge exchanged. A total of USD 199,611 from the 10YFP Trust Fund managed by UN Environment and equivalent funding of USD 83,683 from the RSPO will be distributed over the two project years to smallholders in the Sabah area of eastern Malaysia and Seruyan in central California. It is estimated that the success of the project will improve the livelihoods of at least 50,000 sabah smallholder and self-employed farmers and more than 5,300 independent smallholder farmers in Seruyan. “While over the years RSPO has worked to support smallholder farmers, we recognize that we do not yet need to bring about large-scale involvement of smallholder farmers who want the RSPO and our stakeholders. However, certification has a significant impact on improving the livelihoods of smallholder farmers and interventions under this programme will be scaled up at the skill level. enable these small farmers to obtain RSPO certification,” he said. Yohanes Izmi Ryan, RSPO`s director of strategic projects, is working to get the project off the table and see that smallholder farmers have such a strong support.
