PISAgro | Partnership for Indonesia Sustainable Agriculture



Indonesia is one of the world's top rubber producers and exporters, primarily focused on natural rubber. The industry had been grappling with price volatility, driven by global supply-demand dynamics and fluctuating commodity prices. Efforts were being made to improve rubber productivity and quality through replanting programs and the adoption of modern farming techniques. Additionally, there was a growing interest in sustainability, with initiatives promoting responsible and environmentally friendly rubber production. However, challenges such as pest and disease management, access to credit for smallholders, and market access remained.

Rubber WG is, a collaborative effort involving private sector leaders, governmental bodies, non-profit organizations, and smallholder rubber farmers, is resolutely committed to advancing productivity and livelihoods within the rubber industry through sustainable and inclusive practices. Rubber WG central mission revolves around empowering smallholder rubber farmers with the knowledge, resources, and ethical farming techniques necessary to enhance rubber yields, reduce environmental impact, and ensure equitable economic benefits. Through comprehensive initiatives spanning responsible land management, access to high-quality planting materials, integrated pest management, and fair market access, the initiative strives not only to boost smallholders' rubber productivity and income but also champions environmentally conscious and socially responsible rubber farming. Rubber WG serves as a powerful example of the transformative potential of public-private partnerships, demonstrating how collective efforts can drive positive change, secure the future of the rubber industry, and uplift the well-being of rural communities in a sustainable and inclusive manner.
