Agricultural production accounts for 12,9% of Indonesia’s growth domestic product and 43,3% of total employment. However, Indonesia’s agriculture has faced some challenges such as reduction of arable land and climate change on one hand, and the fast-growing population on the other hand. As an archipelagic country, Indonesia has a high risk resulting from the impacts of climate change.
In response to the impacts of climate change, agricultural production and food systems need to undergo adaptation and mitigation measures. Food producers will have to adapt their farming system techniques in the context of new climate conditions, and increasingly limited natural resources, while at the same time reducing GHG emissions.
- Analysis of the structure of value chain in agriculture, key players and existing climate-smart agriculture (CSA) initiatives in Indonesia
- Survey of best practices
- Identification of potential options of smart solutions in each segment in the value chain and analysis of their benefits, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges in Indonesia
- Analysis of the potential implications of CSA models on “Making Indonesia 4.0”
- Identification and development of potential CSA projects prioritizing smart farming technologies
It is expected that basic information on current status, supply and demand of climate smart agriculture system for the adaptation of climate change effect on agricultural production in Indonesia can be gained. Also, the information on the implementation or new innovation technology in agriculture among different stakeholders will be collected.
