Moral economies and ecologies of food production in Indonesia
Indonesia's food supply is at risk from climate change, land use change, water shortages and soil degradation, as well as facing increasing demand from a growing population in which inquality is very high. Health issues due to the abandonment of traditional diets abound. Many of the issues are driven by profiteering at multiple levels. Sustained positive outcomes at a food system level, however, are not achievable without attention to moral economy principles. Newly emerging farmers movements in indonesia are recognising this, and striving to produce healthy food sustainably and at an afforable, stable price, aiming alsoto protect consumers from market price volatility. The paper illustrates these developments with a range of case studies.
