Mubyarto Public Policy Forum – COVID-19, Agriculture, and Rural Development

The late Professor Mubyarto was a renowned advocate for agricultural and rural development, as well as poverty alleviation in Indonesia. Prof Chris Manning will discuss how the coronavirus pandemic has increased the number of rural and agricultural employment and how such revival can become more permanent than in the post-AFC period. Prof Catur Sugiyanto will review and discuss the growing urban farming in Yogyakarta: what and who they are and how these activities can support the urban poor. Dr Lucentezza will explain how the pandemic has sharpened the need to capitalise on existing cooperative behaviour to stimulate community collective action in overcoming the impact of the pandemic and how it can transform rural development.
