Building a better future in Indonesia through smart farming
In rural Indonesia, many people like Tukiyem (pictured) make their living through agriculture. Here he is depicted tending to his fields, which have been subject to increasingly unpredictable weather, including dry spells, heavy rain and irregular seasonal shifts. It’s a precarious livelihood subject to many challenges. Unsuccessful harvests mean less income for Tukiyem, along with reduced access to food and increased instability.
Coping with climate change requires new ways of working. Mercy Corps is collaborating with farmers like Tukiyem in Indonesia to introduce new practices and technologies, helping them boost their productivity and income. These resources aim to help vulnerable farmers adapt to climate challenges and build more secure lives for their families.
Working for a sustainable future must centre on the people most affected by the climate crisis, but the weight of changing the world can’t fall on them alone. You can help support and amplify grassroots movements, make your voice heard and show solidarity in a number of ways. Find out more clicking on the links below:
