Collaborating with farmers, NGOs and business to find a solution to human-elephant conflict.

Rurality project in Sabah Malaysia

The mill is located in Sabah and is involved in Nestlé’s supply chain. Rurality’s project aims to find a long-term solution to human-elephant conflict in the area and support farmers to develop their resilience to better their productivity and livelihoods.

Key activities

Income diversification

Rurality is identifying potential income diversification opportunities with support from stakeholders to foster connection to the market.

Group and individual training

Rurality connects and empowers smallholders through trainings, workshops and field visits to improve productivity by applying best management practice.

Connectivity between farmers and stakeholders

Rurality forms informal groups to help farmers connect within each other and to create a dynamic relationship with external stakeholders for information sharing and better decision making.

Human elephant conflict management

Trainings have been conducted with local smallholders on how to manage human-elephant conflict and an independent HEC Core Monitoring Group has been formed consisting of community members. Elephant relocation has also taken place for the safety of farmers and the animal. Rurality continues to collaborate with project partners to find a long-term solution to the issue.
