The aim of this paper is to provide an assessment of the monetary costs and benefits of smallholder RSPO certification, based on available data sources. In particular, we are interested to understand the upfront costs needed to prepare smallholders for certification, and the recurring costs and benefits of certification. Explicit attention is paid to possibilities of yield improvement and good agricultural management for independent smallholders, and the costs and benefits of those.
