We work to find new models of small-scale rural production systems that benefit both nature and society. Reducing deforestation and environmental degradation in Indonesia requires the development of rural production systems that are both sustainable and beneficial to rural households. Rural households in Indonesia are typically poorer than urban households, and local and indigenous communities often do not have their rights to land and resources recognised. Industrial scale concessions as well fisheries operations have often deprived rural households from accessing their land and resources without providing viable alternatives while also degrading the natural environment.
Farmers are actors who directly use land for producing agricultural commodities. They face different challenges depending on the type of commodities produced, their connection to the market, and the behavior of farmers influenced by geographical and demographic conditions.
We work with farmers, including younger generations, to protect nature.
