    AGRICULTURAL SITE SELECTION AMONG PERMANENT FIELD FARMERS: AN EXAMPLE FROM EAST KALIMANTAN, INDONESIA CHRISTINE PADOCH Institute of Economic Botany New York Botanical Garden Bronx, NY ABSTRACT.-Traditional cultivators usually examine a number of environmental variables before choosing a site for agricultural production. Incontrast to most File Size: 1MB. (The term deforestation is used here in the strict sense favored by Lanly []: conversion of forests to a nonforest land use. Thus, logging of a primary—that is, virgin or old-growth—forest is not regarded as deforestation unless the logging is so intensive that tree cover is .

    Agricultural land is defined as the land area that is either arable, under permanent crops, or under permanent pastures. Arable land includes land under temporary crops such as cereals, temporary meadows for mowing or for pasture, land under market or kitchen gardens, and land temporarily fallow. Clearly, Indonesia's production-led approach to achieving food self sufficiency in rice was not sustainable. It has been stated that sustainable agricultural development occurs when "both the real economic costs of production and the real environmental costs of production are expected to remain constant or to fall as production expands.

    As in many other developing countries, the concerns about food security in Indonesia during the s and early s resulted in policies aimed at achieving self-sufficiency in food crops. The Government of Indonesia (GOI) combined price interventions and economic incentives to encourage agricultural production, especially of the staple crops. The focus of the study is rural Indonesia, where deforestation is causing intensive biodiversity loss while agriculture is the main industry. We estimate an agricultural production function and find that farmers in rural Indonesia experienced a reduction in agricultural productivity of 45% between and or US$ billion in Cited by: 1.

Forest-Land Conversion, Ecosystem Services, and Economic Issues for Policy: A Review 3 and trends in the production of ecosystem services. By comparison, the NCP () is more focused on developing scientific and financial tools to “motivate and finance conservation.” Finally, research related to ecosystem services can be found in.

Agriculture is one of the key sectors within the Indonesian the last 50 years, the sector's share in national gross domestic product has decreased considerably, due to the rise of industrialisation and service sector. Nevertheless, for the majority of Indonesian households, farming and plantation remains as a vital income generator.

Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago, consisting of s islands. It is physiologically, biologically, and culturally one of the most diverse countries in the world.

Some. At this rate of growth, Indonesia joins China, Malaysia and Thailand as the four Asian nations most likely to emulate the successes of Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Singapore.

Forestry is a significant employer providing work for about 2% of the total workforce - about million jobs, sustaining at least 15 million Indonesians. Forests. Indonesia is the world’s fifth largest emitter of greenhouse gases, mainly due to the conversion of its forests and carbon-rich peatlands.

These shifts in land use have ecological and social consequences, as Indonesia’s forests are home to thousands of plant and animal species, and million Indonesians depend directly on the forests. causes on agricultural land conversion into development facilities, both fertile agricultural land and less productive agricultural land to be used to improve their regional incomes.

According to Rusastra and Budhi (), in Banjarmasin there are many paddy field conversions in urban and semi-urban areas as a result of housing enlargement. Inthe total forest cover in land designated for other land uses increased from million hectares in to more than 9 million increased forest area is due in good part to the conversion of agricultural farmland to farm forestry on Java and the Eastern Islands.

Since the. To avoid the conversion of forested land in HPK and APL, Ministry of forestry needs to change the status of forest functions under a land swap mechanism. Total area for land swap is aboutha, i.e. non-forested land of production forest (HP) to convertible production forest (HPK) aboutha and.

Forest land conversion leads to ecological effects (e.g., changes in water quality and wildlife habitat) and socio-economic effects (e.g., expanding urban-forest interface, reduced long-term timber production possibilities and loss of open space). Socioeconomic drivers of land use change such as population totals and personal income levels haveCited by: 5.

Indonesia has three categories of forest land: Conservation Forests, Protected Forests, and Production Forests. Inthe Ministry of Forestry reported that the total area of Indonesia’s production forests (i.e.

limited and permanent production forests) was over 56million hectares. These areas are comprised of primary forests, secondary. Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world.2 The nation’s total land area is around million hectares (ha), of which some 55 million ha are agricultural, and million ha are forest.

Of the agricultural land, 24 million ha consist of arable land, with 20 million ha under permanent by: 3. 1 are still facilitating the conversion of forests into private agribusiness concessions.

Similarly if agricultural land is abandoned due to degradation that too indicates an loss to meeting future food production demands. Farming secondary forests in Indonesia. Estimates of the area of swidden fallow secondary forest in Indonesia are inaccurate, partly because swidden agricultural practices giving rise to the secondary forest are heterogeneous.

Throughout Indonesia, swidden agriculture is evolving into more intensive land use. A mixed secondary forest. With its vast and abundant fertile soils Indonesia is a major global key producer of a wide variety of agricultural tropical products, and although agriculture's share of the country's gross domestic product (GDP) has declined markedly during the last five decades, it still provides income for the majority of Indonesian households today.

In this sector employed around 49 million. It helps stabilize farm production, thereby reducing dependence on forests. It ensures that all members, including women, have an equal opportunity to participate. Long-Term Impact. The program strives to improve agricultural livelihoods, helping families gain food security in a protected land area without further encroaching on the endangered Category: Charity > Theme > Climate Change.

However, this policy affects forest and land use; approximately 10% of the national forest area has been allocated for conversion to other land uses whenever land is needed for development, designated as convertible production forests (Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Republic of Indonesia, ).

Indonesia has been trying to maintain a Author: Motoe Miyamoto. This statistic shows the total agricultural production in Indonesia from to Inthe total production of agricultural goods in Indonesia was about million dollars.**This project includes work formerly known as Project POTICO**.
