Background
CRS
Indonesia,
in collaboration with local partners
Panitia Penyelenggara Sosial Ekonomi Keuskupan Atambua (PPSE-KA) and Yayasan Mitra Tani Mandiri (YMTM) have implemented Sustainable Agriculture for Enhanced Resilience
(SAfER) in 10 food – insecure villages in Belu District, East Nusa Tenggara
Province since October 2013 until April 2016. The SAfER project has succeeded in supporting 1500 target farmers iincreasing their food crops production by applying
farming techniques,
including soil and water conservation, that are more appropriate for coping
with environmental stresses.

Learning
from SAfER project, CRS just started TaMPIk project in 10 new village still in
Belu District. CRS Indonesia will build
on successes and lessons learned from the SAfER project, which contributed to
an increase of more than 300% in corn and bean production. Household and
communities will increase their resiliency by adopting appropriate farming and
soil and water conservation techniques to adapt to changing climate conditions
and at the same time conserve and maintain the ecosystem. The appropriate
technologies that will be introduced to the TaMPIk project beneficiaries
include seeds sortation and storage, the making and use of organic fertilizers
and pesticides, improved planting system, harvest and post-harvest handling,
vegetable cultivation, and line sowing. To conserve and maintain the ecosystem,
this project will also promote the use renewable energy for cooking and other
households needs such as electricity.
With the high population of cattle in some of the
target villages, both SAfER and TaMPIk project promoted the use of cow dunk
only to make organic fertilizers/compost. Therefore, Biogas system is
considered as good alternative for environmental friendly renewable energy.
Farmers will be able to use the bio slurry for organic fertilizers.
