Calling Consultant for Organize Policy Dialog and Press Conference – OXFAM

Oxfam in Indonesia is implementing Right to Food Project with 4 national
partners. One of targeted outcome we look for is to improve policy in
private sector. Oxfam has responsible to develop public – private
partnership (PPP) safeguard in agriculture as a response to the current
trend of increasing private investment in agriculture in Indonesia. This
positive trend must be followed by strengthening farmer’s rights.
Government both in local and national level as representative of public
must take clear responsible or mandates on this situation.
There is no clear definition about the concept of PPP in agriculture in
any regulation. But Oxfam has identified PPP in practices and then asked
consultant to conduct research in two agriculture commodities: rice and
corn. Based on Oxfam and consultant research in Sragen, Central Java, and
Malang and Mojokerto, East Java, we found that there are many different
types of PPP in practice despite the parties is always same.
However, role of private sector in general is to give the agriculture
inputs to farmers, yet farmer is expected to increase the productivity.
The main interesting of the research finding is the government’s role as
public representative quite different in each location. Oxfam requested
consultant then to develop safeguard PPP in agriculture as guidance for
stakeholders to understand the generic role of public and private sector
and protection for farmers.
