Agriculture Research Talent needed to support the UNDP and ANGIN efforts in developing Social Finance

Indonesia has a substantial agriculture sector, which provides incomes for over 40 million, or 33% of the labor force. Smallholder farmers in Indonesia typically suffer from lack of capacity, low productivity, low incomes, a long and fragmented agricultural value chain, geographical isolation and lack access to necessary information, equipment, resources, and markets. As a result, they are materially and financially unable to access the economic opportunities offered by increased international and domestic demand for organic and indigenous agricultural produce.

To support the achievements of the SDGs in Indonesia the research will focus on the demand side of the agriculture supply chain, especially the demand of large local and global food companies and distributors. Based on the understanding of the demand needs of these large food players the research tries to identify the ma

Perempuan yang Membangkitkan Kesadaran Gender

Pengalaman personal Intan Darmawati - Spesialis Pelatih Gender

Pengalaman saya berkecimpung di isu gender berawal dari pengalaman pribadi saya menjadi seorang anak perempuan yang lahir dari keluarga minoritas yang patriarkal. Perlakuan masyarakat yang menyalahkan saya yang terlahir sebagai seorang anak perempuan (bukan anak laki-laki) untuk melegitimasi perginya bapak meninggalkan kami, perlakuan dan pandangan masyarakat yang merendahkan ibu saya sebagai seorang perempuan yang ditinggalkan suaminya dan menjadi orang tua tunggal, serta pengalaman saya menjadi korban pelecehan seksual membuat saya menyadari ada yang “salah” dengan semua tatanan sosial ini. Saya menjadi lebih sensitif dan kritis terhadap pandangan dan perilaku yang membeda-bedakan manusia karena jenis kelamin, etnisitas, agama dan status sosialnya. Pengalaman menjadi korban inilah yang membuat saya bertekad untuk melakukan sesuatu supaya tidak ada lagi orang yang mengalami

Your Experience is a Power to be a Gender Coach

A personal story by Intan Darmawati - Gender Coach

My engagement in gender issues began with my personal experience of being born as a girl in a minority patriarchal family. People blame me for being born as a girl (rather than as a boy) to justify the reason why our father left us. People belittle my mother as a woman whose husband left her and thereby becomes a single parent. My experience of being a victim of sexual abuse has made me realise that there is something “wrong” with our social structure. I have become more sensitive to, and critical of, views and behaviours that discriminate people by sex, ethnicity, religion, and social status. This experience as a victim that makes me determined to do something in order to prevent other people from having similar experiences.

In my journey to fight for justice and gender equality, I have seen many women and men who are not aware that they have been cons

Masa Depan Ketahanan Pangan Dunia dalam Bahaya

Semakin banyak tantangan. Tanpa upaya tambahan, target mengakhiri kelaparan pada 2030 tak akan tercapai

Pemberdayaan petani skala kecil dan memberi mereka akses yang lebih baik terhadap informasi, pasar, dan teknologi adalah kunci untuk menjamin masa depan ketahanan pangan.

Laporan baru FAO The Future of Food and Agriculture: Trends and Challenges, menerangkan bahwa kemampuan umat manusia untuk memberi makan dirinya sendiri dalam bahaya akibat tekanan intensifikasi pada sumberdaya alam, ganjalan ketidaksetaraan, dan dampak dari perubahan iklim. Meskipun progres nyata dan signifikan dalam mengurangi kelaparan global telah dicapai selama lebih dari 30 tahun, meningkatkan produksi pangan dan pertumbuhan ekonomi seringkali menyebabkan biaya besar yang harus ditanggung lingkungan.
