On 22 June, Yayasan AWS Indonesia on behalf of the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) and Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber (GPSNR) has successfully held a webinar for GPSNR members to launch the ‘pathways toward good water stewardship in the natural rubber sector’ report. The Pathways report and the webinar addressed the critical topics for good water stewardship uptake in the natural rubber sector, which are: the main drivers for building a strong business case for water, the priority topics on water as part of GPSNR’s Policy Framework and the opportunity to improve performance on water at site and catchment level and make credible claim through AWS Standard certification by the natural rubber sector.

Improved performance on good water stewardship, as defined by the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS by the natural rubber sector would support sustainable production, increase the sector’s resilience to water-related risks and increase the sector’s role as a good water steward at catchment or landscape level.

To respond to the growing water risks in agriculture and work towards stronger actions on water in the natural rubber sector and to build business resilience and improve sustainable production, AWS and the GPSNR Secretariat collaborated in the ISEAL Innovations Fund project ‘Boosting sustainability practice and performance at the landscape level through good water stewardship’ project by developing a strategic document called Pathways towards good water stewardship by the natural rubber sector.

Together with our project partners, this time on our joint webinar, we will highlight the areas for mutual strengthening and the potential challenges and opportunities for good water stewardship in the natural rubber and palm oil sector as part of jurisdictional and landscape approaches. This webinar is open to AWS members and partners interested in or working on landscape and jurisdictional approaches, particularly in agriculture, and creating awareness and interest from a wider audience of leading players in jurisdictional and landscape approaches.

Spotlight on Indonesia: Pathways to Good Water Stewardship in Landscape & Jurisdictional Approaches in Palm Oil & Natural Rubber is the second webinar of the ISEAL Innovations Fund project 2020-2022 ‘Boosting sustainability practice and performance at the landscape level through good water stewardship’.

Driven by the intrinsic principles of the AWS Standard to work at catchment scale, and recognising the strengths of Roundtable on Sustainable Palm OilGlobal Platform For Sustainable Natural Rubber and Lingkar Temu Kabupaten Lestari, and bringing together two globally traded commodities in the landscape, palm oil and natural rubber, this project will focus on developing practical means to strengthening inclusion and uptake of good water stewardship in guidance documents, tools and performance measurement.

AWS Spotlight on Indonesia: Driving Good Water Stewardship in Landscape & Jurisdictional Approaches in Palm Oil & Natural Rubber webinar is the first AWS Spotlight webinar of the ISEAL Innovations Fund project 2020-2022 ‘Boosting sustainability practice and performance at the landscape level through good water stewardship'.

There is a growing need for strengthening jurisdictional and landscape approaches and sustainability standards on water, as water as an asset isn’t valued sufficiently which is leading to overlooked risks. This relevance and urgency for strengthening jurisdictional and landscape approaches and standards on water, and to pilot this in the context of Indonesia.

Driven by the intrinsic principles of the AWS Standard to work at catchment scale, and recognising the strengths of Roundtable on Sustainable Palm OilGlobal Platform For Sustainable Natural Rubber and Lingkar Temu Kabupaten Lestari Secretariat, and bringing together two globally traded commodities in the landscape, palm oil and natural rubber, this project will focus on developing practical means to strengthening inclusion and uptake of good water stewardship in guidance documents, tools and performance measurement.

In this first webinar will introducing the project to Alliance for Water Stewardship members and partners interested in or working on landscape and jurisdictional approaches, particularly in agriculture, and creating awareness and interest from a wider audience of leading players in jurisdictional and landscape approaches to introduce our focus on water stewardship as part of these.
