Veuillez indiquer quels ont été les résultats obtenus dans le cadre des activités entreprises pour la mise en œuvre de cette Résolution: 
Since the task force started working on the complex issues surrounding the sustainability of palm oil and other oil crops there has been a noticeable shift in language in media and scientists reporting on this issue, especially in reference to relative yields of different oil crops and land allocation to different oil crops to meet future vegetable oil demands.
Quelles mesures ont été prises afin de surmonter ces obstacles ?: 
Finding the financial means to fund the work we want to do to meet the goals of the Resolution has been elusive. Without funding it has been very difficult to implement studies the Task Force members had agreed to conduct. A good example is the study on the socio-economic impacts of different oil crops which has not been comprehensively done.
Veuillez indiquer et décrire brièvement les activités planifiées par la suite pour la mise en œuvre de cette Résolution: 
Activité FutureDescription
Autre activitéThe new mandate of the Oil Crops Task Force requires that we expand our membership to include more members with experience of other oil crops besides oil palm (e.g., soy, rapeseed, peanut etc). The new co-chair will also ensure that the social aspects of vegetable oil production are equally well covered as the environmental ones
Activités techniques/scientifiquesWe now have funding for implementing several studies that the Task Force considers important for meeting Resolution 061
