The issue of sustainability of tropical commodity chains is a major issue in Southeast Asia. The recurrent public debate around the impacts of oil palm cultivation, in particular, crystallizes opinions and has direct consequences on the relationship between importing and producing countries with many direct and indirect consequences, both on the diplomatic and economic areas. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. In order to realize SDG ambitions in the field of sustainable commodity chains, CIRAD and its regional partners are setting up a partnership platform for the construction of scientific projects and training curricula in South-East Asia, a region of the world where problems related to the sustainability of major agricultural sectors are particularly prominent (deforestation, rural poverty reduction, family farming, etc.). SALSA (Sustainable Agricultural Landscapes in Southeast Asia) aims at regionally federating and mobilizing scientific and training skills on the sustainability of perennial crops sectors. SALSA will promote, within a framework of collective action, the concrete integration of disciplines and multi-stakeholder teams into research, training and development projects that will be conducted on the ground through shared experimental networks and academic and training curricula tailored to the needs for present and future skills.
