Our Identity

We are a vibrant team of experts committed to helping farmers produce commodities without harming the environment or society. From our research, we develop policy innovations and IT applications that are tested on the ground and then adopted by our partners. We work with, rather than against, government, companies, farmers, and communities to safeguard nature and society.


We aspire for an Indonesia where land and seascapes are managed sustainably and benefit the communities that depend on them.


Through innovative research, policy analysis, technology and alliance-building, we seek to improve public policies and strengthen civil society to sustainably manage Indonesia’s natural resources and agricultural production systems, throughout the life-cycle of products.


Transparency. Our organizational governance, implementation processes and research methods are transparent, open and subject to stringent scrutiny.

Rigorous. Our governance, research and innovation are designed based on best practices and held to the highest ethical, scientific and fiscal standards.

Solution oriented. Our approach is not simply to identify problems but design and propose innovative, practical and effective policy and technological solutions.

Equality.  Our governance, research and innovation encourage and embrace equality, recognizing the challenges that women, indigenous people and minority groups face and protecting their rights while providing them with opportunities to thrive.

Integrity. Our staff adhere to the highest ethical standards and act in a way which is honest, respectful and professional at all times. We respect pluralism, human rights, and universal values of democracy.
