Indonesian food prices are one of the highest among South East Asian countries and some basic food items are more expensive in Indonesia than in countries with a higher GDP per capita such as Australia and Singapore. This presents a massive challenge for the nearly 100 million poor and vulnerable people in the country, and contributes to the greater issue of chronic malnutrition across the nation.
Come and join Hizkia Respatiadi, Head of Research from the Center for Indonesian Policy Studies (CIPS) to discuss how Indonesia's food trade policy is linked to this situation and what policy alternative the government could use to lower food prices in Indonesia.
The focus area of Hizkia's research is policy issues in Food Trade and Agriculture. He leads the Affordable Food for the Poor project at CIPS hat aims to lower basic food prices in Indonesia by reducing trade barriers between Indonesia and other countries.

Call: International Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials Seed Money Projects (SMPs) 2018
Seed Money Projects serve to initiate (or act as the ‘seed’ for) international partnerships for Dutch SMEs in the Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials sectors. The creation of a consortium is key in this. The objective is to contribute to the sustainable development of a local agricultural and/or horticultural system. This is conditional on the participation of a local problem owner (a business and/or government) able to point to a demand and necessity for the project. A Seed Money Project results in an international partnership feasibility business model. A good business model is managed and supported by business and must be capable of ‘tempting’ other potential candidate consortium members to participate and thus contribute to international system solutions in the Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials sectors.

75% of the world's poor live in rural areas and 2.5 billion people derive their livelihoods from agriculture. However, low agricultural productivity, poor transportation systems and limited policies affect their production and agriculture trade. Today, more than 800 million people worldwide are undernourished, while more than a billion tons of food never make it to the table.
This is exactly where solutions are crucially needed to develop new sustainable agricultural practices, support small-scale and family farmers and allow them equal access to land, technology and markets.

LANDac’s Annual International Conference 2018 will take place on 28th and 29th June 2018 in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The conference will look at land investments through the lens of mobility. What are the implications of land based investments on the movements of people, and on processes of urbanization? And how have displacement and population movements contributed to new and contesting land claims?
The 2018 conference takes this land-mobilities nexus as a starting point, focusing on the extent to which land acquisitions trigger the inflow or outflow of particular groups of people – and also yield other mobilities (capital, goods, ideas etc.) and land claims. Given the variety of mobilities, what are good ways forward in land governance? To what extent can land governance contribute to inclusive development – preventing eviction and displacement, while supporting vulnerable groups to settle in safe pla
