The Civic Engagement Alliance empowers and strengthens civil society so they can contribute to the empowerment of smallholder’s enterprises and farmers, and to a responsible business strategy through three pathways that are closely interlinked.

Civil society in Indonesia has a history of being confrontational with the government and needs to adjust direction whereas it’s possible to be more constructive. There is limited experience engaging with the private sector and therefore threre is a need to increase capacity to create opportunities for a synergic engagement; especially in agriculture which is at the crossroads. While supporting the livelihoods of millions of people, the sector needs to fortify the renewed and robust growth of the economy. We believe that four commodities need to be inclusive and those commodities are: palm oil, rice, spices and horticulture.
On the other side, we support the launch of the National Action Plan for Business and Human Rights as a tool to plan the systemic change. We believe there will be business commitment to support the integration of human rights principles and adoption of compliance for sustainability with a special focus on the huge plantation companies.
