The RSPO Smallholder Support Fund (RSSF) makes it possible for palm oil smallholders around the world to achieve RSPO certification, without incurring the cost. Through RSPO certification, smallholders can increase their yields and remove the obstacles to reach international markets. Certification also helps smallholders reduce the negative impacts of palm oil cultivation on ecosystems and improve livelihoods - creating a space where palm oil, local communities, and the environment can co-exist in harmony. Find out more about how the RSSF works including which smallholder groups can apply and what activities can be funded in the video below.

RSSF is funded from 10% of the revenue generated from the trade of Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO).
The funds are used to support smallholders with the costs incurred for training, project management, High Conservation Value (HCV) and Social and Environmental Impact Assessment (SEIA), audit costs, as well as the tools and techniques to support smallholder development.
