Improving sago value chain for indonesia and EU market

a case study of Kapuas District in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia

Samenvatting

Local farmers in Central Kalimantan have continued to destroy peatlands in the area to make space for planting more profitable crops like oil palm. These peatlands store huge amounts of carbon and degrading them increases the release of greenhouse gases emissions. For this reason, planting of naturally occurring peatland crops are being encouraged by the Indonesian government. One of these crops is sago palm, which is grown mostly for its starch however, local farmers complain of the unavailability of markets and have continued to degrade peatlands to plant other crops. The research thus aimed to investigate the current sago value chain in Central Kalimantan to analyse opportunities for chain development that will improve the livelihoods of local farmers and maintain peatlands.
