Working Group - Rice

Context:

Much like most of Southeast Asia, rice is Indonesia’s main staple crop. Fluctuation in the price of rice has significant impact on inflation rates and is a crucial determinant of the nation’s welfare and economy. It is unsurprising then that rice sovereignty is a crucial target for the Indonesian government. 90% of Indonesia’s rice production is produced by smallholder farmers, who own on average a land area of less than 0.8 hectares.

Activities:

Providing comprehensive GAP support for smallholder farmers in 8 districts to ensure that at least 20,000 smallholder farmers increase productivity and increase their incomes by 20% against baseline measures
