Indonesia can achieve food security through crop loss mitigation and risk reduction

Source(s):  Institute of Resource Governance and Social Change (IRGSC)

The second wave of Indonesian agricultural involution due to impact of natural hazards and climate extremes, IRGSC policy brief no 2:

This policy brief addresses the high agricultural loss due to natural hazards in agricultural sectors in Indonesia, and the lack of adequate ex-ante risk management policy to guide risk reduction in the sector, which will affect the country's food security. The research examines the impact of disasters and climate hazards on Indonesian agricultural and food crops. The findings firmly conclude that natural catastrophes have already caused a great deal of loss in agricultural sectors in particular food crops. Loss accumulation over the last decade has caused significant leakage of central government funds, and reduced agricultural production. The paper argues that the government’s existing policy in expanding crop fields and agricultural areas needs to be complemented by strategic measures in reduction of loss and damage.
