Challenges for Sustainable Agricultural Biotechnology Development in Indonesia

Hermanto Siregar and Bustanul Arifin

Asian Journal of Agriculture and Development, 2010, vol. 07, issue 2, 10

Abstract: The development of biotechnology in Indonesia is a response to more serious food security challenges as the growth of food yield in the last decade has been much less than that of population. This paper describes biotechnology development in Indonesia, examines government policies related to biotechnology, and exposes challenges facing biotechnology development in the future. It also suggests that the government should provide clearer policy actions including fiscal incentives and legal protection, involve the private sector in developing innovations in research and development, and encourage wider participation of civil society in the development of biotechnology.
