Have a look at the factsheets below displaying the project components of our three Asian implementing countries (Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines).
In Thailand the projects works through the establishment of platforms and networks involving the various stakeholders, setting up area-based SCP models with farming communities in Northern Thailand, developing a traceability app for connecting consumers to producers and retailers, engaging consumers through the campaign “Eat Better” in raising awareness on the impact of food consumption on ecosystems, and developing science-based policy recommendations for national mitigation strategies.
WWF-Indonesia developed the campaign “Better Consumption” (Beli Yang Baik) and is combining this with private business engagement. The palm oil sector in Indonesia (producers, brand owners, retailers) is targeted to advance sustainability initiatives (e.g. in roundtables), while consumers and civil society are mobilised to demand more sustainable products (such as palm oil). Over decades of engagement, WWF-Indonesia has formed strong community ties, and is reaching out to engage consumers through communities as well as online/ social media.
In the Philippines the campaign “The Sustainable Diner” partners mainly with restaurants to avoid food waste and provide healthier and more environmentally-friendly food options. This way, multi-sectoral awareness on the environmental impacts of the food service industry is created and ways to reduce the ecological footprint are demonstrated.
