    There is still a long road ahead before all Indonesian's can benefit from the full potential of ICT. That road seems even longer to rural women. Despite some improvements in access and the rapid deployment of lower cost wireless technologies, not much has changed in rural areas of Indonesia. Infrastructure in rural areas is limited and existing services are expensive and practically outside of rural women's reach. Women still face enormous barriers and access to communications and information relevant to their realities is very limited.

    The authors describe and analyze an unconventional approach to river basin management in a developing country undergoing rapid economic, political, and institutional change. The founding of the Brantas River Basin Management Corporation (Perum Jasa Tirta I - PJT 1), a national state-owned company for river basin management, initiated an emphasis on river basin management to operate and maintain existing infrastructure, plan and implement the allocation of water, and address problems that affect basin-level water resources.

    Indonesian agriculture is at a
    crossroads. Supporting the livelihood of millions of
    Indonesians, it needs to underpin renewed and robust growth
    of the economy; and be a key component of the
    Government's poverty alleviation strategy. The
    challenge for the future is to reinvigorate productivity
    gains among rural producers, and provide the foundation for
    long run sustainability of these productivity gains.

    Indonesia stands at the threshold of a new era and at an important juncture of its history. After the historic economic, political and social upheavals at the end of the 1990s, Indonesia has started to regain its footing. The country has largely recovered from the economic and financial crisis that threw millions of its citizens back into poverty in 1998 and saw it regress to a low-income status. Recently, it has once again crossed the threshold, making it one of the world's emergent middle-income countries.

    There is increasing interest in climate
    change issues in Indonesia particularly in the lead-up to
    the COP13 or Copenhagen meeting in Bali in December 2007
    when there was renewed focus on Indonesia as the third
    largest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the world due
    to deforestation, peat-land degradation, and forest fires.
    In Indonesia, the agriculture sector employs the largest
    share, 45 percent, of Indonesia's labor and contributes

    The authors use regression analysis to
    assess the potential welfare impact of rainfall shocks in
    rural Indonesia. In particular, they consider two shocks:
    (i) a delay in the onset of monsoon and (ii) a significant
    shortfall in the amount of rain in the 90 day post-onset
    period. Focusing on households with family farm businesses,
    the analysis finds that a delay in the monsoon onset does
    not have a significant impact on the welfare of rice

    This paper analyzes the trends and
    evolution of public spending in the agriculture sector in
    Indonesia, as well as the impact of public spending on
    agricultural growth. It finds that, in line with empirical
    work undertaken in other countries, public spending on
    agriculture and irrigation during the period 1976-2006 had a
    positive impact on agricultural growth, while public
    spending on fertilizer subsidies had the opposite effect.

    Did the rise in food prices have a long-term impact on agricultural production? Using household-level panel data from seven provinces of Indonesia, this paper finds that the price shock created a forward-looking incentive to invest, which can dynamically enhance productivity in agriculture. It also finds that the impact of the price shock on investment behavior differs by initial wealth. In response to price increases, wealthy farmers invested more in productive assets, while poor farmers increased their financial savings as well as consumption.
