<b>LINKING CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION OPTIONS FOR RICE PRODUCTION AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN INDONESIA</b><br> (KETERKAITAN OPSI-OPSI ADAPTASI PERUBAHAN IKLIM UNTUK PRODUKSI BERAS NASIONAL DAN PEMBANGUAN BERKELANJUTAN DI INDONESIA)
AbstractClimate change is expected to significantly influence Indonesian rice production as this phenomenon will exacerbate extreme climate events such as El Nino and La Nina which have caused serious loss in rice production. This paper is attempted to propose plausible climate change adaptations for rice production by examining the formal documents on climate change studies in Indonesia and rice development strategies and to investigate their linkage with the Sustainable Development in Indonesia. The result shows that climate change adaptations will support Indonesian rice development strategies through options of “change cropping pattern/modified planting season” which has not been addressed by the development strategies. The proposed adaptations which are directed through two major programs for increasing rice production called as Extensification and Intensification, have also already addressed the four pillars of Indonesian sustainable development, namely: pro-job, pro-poor, pro-growth and pro-environment.
