Indonesia - Yogyakarta Rural Development Project (英语)

The project's aims are to strengthen the capacity of the Yogyakarta provincial government to implement effective area development programs in two extremely poor districts and to assess new technologies designed to achieve these objectives through several experimental programs. Specifically the project would: (a) test and adapt appropriate agricultural technologies and soil conservation measures for upland farming; (b) introduce low-cost promising income-generating activities, e.g. fisheries, livestock, and small-scale enterprises; (c) improve selected rural roads, low-cost preventive and primary health care, and safe drinking water supply; and (d) strengthen provincial planning and program implementation, through technical assistance, training and local participation.
