Project Overview and Role
The Australia-Indonesia Partnership for
Promoting Rural Incomes through Support for Markets in Agriculture (PRISMA 2)
is a five -year program (2019 – 2023) funded by the Australian Government’s aid
program and implemented in cooperation with the Government of Indonesia. The
program will build upon the achievements and results of Phase 1 (2013-2018),
using a market systems development (MSD) approach to support inclusive economic
growth in Indonesia’s agriculture sector.
PRISMA 2 will improve smallholder
farmers’ competitiveness and access to new markets, better inputs, know-how and
technology.. It will aim to achieve a sustainable 30% increase in the net
incomes of a further 700,000 smallholder farming households in Indonesia by
2023 (total 1 million farming households). The program operates in six
provinces: East Java, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), East Nusa Tenggara (NTT),
Papua, West Papua and Central Java.
