Agro-fuels in Palawan have been portrayed as a key solution to lower greenhouse gas emissions and achieve energy independence, as well as a tool for poverty eradication. With these objects in mind, the Provincial Government of Palawan is strongly promoting agro-fuels development, without taking into account the socio-ecological impact of such mono-crop plantations. ALDAW is now making a call for the implementation of more restrictive regulations on oil palm expansion to halt deforestation, habitat destruction, food scarcity, and violation of indigenous peoples’ rights. There is also a scarcity of public records showing the processes and procedures leading to the issuance of land conversion permits and environmental clearances to oil palm companies. In most cases - members of indigenous communities, who have “rented” portions of their land to the oil company, have no clear understanding of the nature of such “agreements” nor they possess written contracts countersigned by the company.
