About the product

Indonesia’s food security and rural development are based on rice production, which provides the bulk of farm incomes and agricultural employment. When trade liberalization has a negative impact on rice farmers’ net incomes it may cause a decline in rice production. This, in turn, has a number of environmental, social and economic consequences. The end goal of this Integrated Assessment is to develop policy packages based on the findings of the study to mitigate the negative effects of trade liberalization and trade-related policies and promote the positive ones.
