Intan Darmawati is a gender trainer in Indonesia. Her commitment to gender issues comes from her own experiences as a girl in a patriarchal family.
‘My engagement began with my personal experience of being born a girl in a minority patriarchal family. People blamed me for being born a girl (rather than a boy) to justify the reason why our father left us. At the same time, family members criticized my mother because she had now become a single parent. I was also a victim of sexual abuse. These experiences have made me realize that there is something ’wrong’ with our social structure. I am now more sensitive to discrimination, and highly motivated to do something against it.
I have seen many women and men who are not aware of discrimination, because they considerexisting relationships to be normal, as taught by tradition and religion, and controlled by laws an... Read more

To get companies, NGOs and other partners on board, it is important to be explicit about the benefits of including women throughout the project. In many developing countries, women play an important role in agriculture, but lack access to resources. Addressing the constraints faced by women leads to better performing value chains, better agricultural production in general, and economic empowerment of women. The benefits of including women throughout the project should be specified, not only in the introduction of your proposal, but also in the strategy and monitoring. When dealing with companies, it can be useful to stress the economi... Read more
Evaluating agriculture and food systems requires understanding the vast and interacting complex of ecosystems, agricultural lands, pastures, inland fisheries, labor, infrastructure, technology, policies, regulations, institutions (including those involved in making policies, framing regulations and providing markets), cultures and traditions that are involved in growing, processing, distributing and consuming food.
Evaluating such complexity with, for example, a yardstick as narrow as “per hectare productivity” of a single crop might appear naïve, and yet, exactly such dangerous simplification infects the dominant discourse on food systems.
The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity for Agriculture and Food” (TEEB AgriFood), a new study launched by UN Environment on the occasion of World Environment Day 2018, demonstrates how t... Read more

Petani Hampir Musnah
Didaerah saya hampir semua masyarakat Di KTP bekerja sebagai petani. Tetapi pada kenyataanya mereka banyak yang meninggalkan sawah,,ladang mereka untuk pergi kekota. Karena tuntutan ekonomi.
Kurangnya edukasi pertanian pada petani membuat petani mengalami gagal panen / mendapatkan hasil yang tidak maksimal. Sehingga untuk memgembalikan modalnya saja belum tentu bisa.
Banyaknya petani belum bisa mengelola pemasaran sehingga harga jual dari petani sangat rendah. Membuat para petani beralih profesi menjadi tukang bangunan dll.
Mari selamatkan petani dengan hargai petani
The post-harvest losses in shallot's value chain are up to 40% which reduces the income of farmers and the availability of nutritious food in the regions. Most of these losses appear to occur during storage. Hence, there is a need for improved on-farm storage solutions in combination with support on harvest, drying and treatment before shallots are stored as these steps determine the quality of the shallots that go into storage. AgriProFocus Indonesia, Post Harvest Network, BoP Inc. visited Bima, West Nusa Tenggara, Ubud, Bali, and Jakarta to meet the key stakeholders.
Almost all of shallot farmers in Sumbawa Island were from Bima district. Those who planted shallot in the other regencies outside Bima that produce shallots, namely the district of Sumbawa and Dompu, also came from Bima (90-95%). They were temporary migrants from Bima, who rented land in Sumbawa and Dompu regencies, for cultivating shallot.
