Abstract

The rise of palm oil as the world’s most consumed vegetable oil has coincided with exponential growth in palm oil research

disproportionate focus on biofuel and engineering topics. Recognising the expansion of oil palm agriculture across the tropics and

towards one that addresses the most fundamental and urgent questions defined by the palm oil stakeholder community. Following

organisations and researchers, the highest priority research questions were identified within 13 themes. The resulting 279

industry, ranging from the ecological and ecosystem impacts of production, to the livelihoods of plantation workers and smallholder

programmes, and studies that involve the consultation of non-academic stakeholders to develop ‘transformative’ solutions to the

related themes, and differed the most in environmental feedback, technology and smallholder related themes. Our

stakeholders of Africa, and Central and South America, and enhanced collaborative efforts with researchers in the major

consuming countries of India and China.
