Ensuring sustainability and equity in the food system is crucial to overcoming the natural crisis, the challenge of climate change and economic inequalities for together better future. The Wise Foodways of the Archipelago Consortium initiated the Indonesian Sustainable Food System (SPBI) platform in collaboration with the Directorate of Food and Agriculture, the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas). Partnership are essential to achieving this purpose and are one of the 17 Global Goals in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The SPBI platform is a forum for coordination and workshops for actors and stakeholders to discuss issues in the Indonesian food system and develop cooperation and synergy to strengthen them. Through this multi-stakeholder cooperation, the Wise Foodways of the Archipelago Consortium hopes that Indonesia will create a strong and sustainable food system by adhering to local, healthy, fair and sustainable principles. Through a series of discussions throughout 2019, the SPBI Platform has produced a Strategic Paper for Indonesian Sustainable Food Systems.
This strategy paper offers an overview of the problems that exist in the current food system in Indonesia and offers recommendations for improving them. It is hoped that this strategy paper can become one of the sources that can be used by stakeholders of the Indonesian food system in formulating policies and programs, as well as making decisions related to food, both at the national and regional levels, which will lead Indonesia towards achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
