In the media: The EU, Malaysian smallholders and big data-informed sustainability by KHOR Yu-Leng

Systems informed by big data can offer compelling evidence for the smallholders. For instance, Malaysia could easily point EU policymakers and buyers to smallholder zones that have been in production (no deforestation) since 2000, 1985, 1970 and so on. For every 300,000ha of smallholder plantations found, buyer could get over one million tonnes of no-deforestation palm oil.
