Monitoring the Socioeconomic Impact of the 2008/2009 Global Financial Crisis in Indonesia - The Impact on Indonesian Agriculture, up to August 2009

Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning

Information collected from various local and national media sources shows that the 2008/09 global financial crisis has had an impact on several agricultural subsectors in Indonesia, especially on export commodities. The Agricultural produces that have been negatively impacted include some plantation produce, such as oil palm, rubber, coffee, cocoa, and copra, in Sumatra, West Java, Central Java, East Java, Bali, South Sulawesi, North Sulawesi and Kalimantan; some food crops, such as corn and cassava, in Lampung; and some commodities of the fisheries product in North Sulawesi, East Java, and DKI Jakarta. Indirectly, the crisis has reduced the demand for chicken outside Java, parallel with the decline in the purchasing power of oil palm and rubber plantation communities.
