Exploring Rural Livelihoods and Building Business Partnerships for Sustainable Agriculture


On the 4th of November the Asia Pacific Development and Security Research Group, UNSW Canberra in coordination with FISIPOL, the University of Gadjah Mada, Indonesia was fortunate enough to host a workshop to explore themes in the field of Indonesian agriculture. The workshop analysed Indonesian agriculture and the pertinence of future sustainability for the nations socio-economics. The workshop also focused on the development of rural livelihood sources and partnership building in the community, education, financing, NGO and government sectors.
The workshop is a follow up in a number of events which have been held to better examine pressing socio-political themes in Indonesia, and the greater Southeast Asian region. The workshop was aided with the use of the “Zoom In” application, which enabled a conference event to be digitally conducted across multiple parts of the globe, connecting scholars and facilitating discussion.
Look out in the future for greater collaboration and research possibilities with a number of events anticipated to be conducted in 2020 by the Asia Pacific Development and Security Research Group, UNSW Canberra.
