This paper addresses the following questions for oil palm concessions developed prior to 2012 in Sumatra and Kalimantan, the leading producers of oil palm both within Indonesia and globally: for the period 2012–2015, did RSPO-certified concessions have a lower density of fire detections, fire ignitions, or‘escaped’ fires compared with those concessions that are not certified? and did this pattern change with increasing likelihood of fires in concessions located on peatland and in dry years?
