  • How Tianyar Farmers Have Become Adaptive in a Barren Place

  • IDEP Webinar: Platform for Various Parties in Responding to the COVID-19

    Handling COVID-19 in Bali needs the involvement of all parties, from broader stakeholders to individual community members. As the economic situation in Bali continues to decline due to the collapse of tourism, strengthening community connections is more important than ever in responding to the pandemic, including the expat community who has lived here in Bali for a number of years. Therefore, on August 7, 2021, IDEP held a webinar to provide space for the expats community to respond to the handling of COVID-19 in Bali.

Therefore, the first step to creating a village with community resilience based on permaculture is to develop a family garden.

     

  • Role of Women in Seed Saving Impact on Community Resilience

    Seeds Saving is the first step to manifest community food resilience. Local seeds’ existence will help farmers manage their agriculture by themselves. Different from hybrid seeds which can’t produce good seeds for the next planting. Moreover, hybrid seeds are a product that creates by industrial agriculture and the big boom agrochemicals. It makes farmers become addicted to seeds in the market. Mongabaylaunched, these conditions will have a fatal impact on national food resilience.
