    Unpacking land acquisition at the oil palm frontier: Obscuring customary rights and local authority in West Kalimantan, Indonesia
    Rietberg, P.I. ; Hospes, O. - \ 2018
    Asia Pacific Viewpoint 59 (2018)3. - ISSN 1360-7456 - p. 338 - 348.
    community response - Indonesia - Kalimantan - land acquisition - local authority - oil palm
    Very few studies have captured the full complexity of land acquisition processes at the Agricultural frontier. Specifically, the different stages in the land acquisition process and the changing responses of local communities to plantation development have not been adequately described and explained. Based on a detailed empirical case study of a land acquisition process in a village at the oil palm frontier in West Kalimantan, Indonesia, we address this knowledge gap. To comprehensively capture reactions ‘from below’ to large-scale land acquisition, we use the interlinked concepts of access, property and authority. We show that the land acquisition process is basically a process of transforming and obscuring customary property rights and local authority. In our case, this process is characterised by an initial recognition of customary rights and local authority by the oil palm company. However, in the course of the process, these property rights and local authority are being transformed and eventually obscured. We call for a more interventionist state to prepare a less uneven playing field at the very beginning of land acquisition processes. This could slow down the nearly irrevocable obfuscation of customary rights and the erosion of local authority at the oil palm frontier.
    Costs and benefits of certification of independent oil palm smallholders in Indonesia
    Hutabarat, S. ; Slingerland, Maja ; Rietberg, P.I. ; Dries, L.K.E. - \ 2018

    RSPO - certification - smallholders - Indonesia - oil palm - costs and benefits
    Sustainable certification schemes have surged in years. The introduction of these schemes poses serious challenges to smallholders. One such certification scheme is the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), which uses certification to increase equitable and sustainable production of palm oil. This study calculates upfront and recurrent costs and monetary benefits of RSPO certification of the Amanah Independent Oil Palm Smallholders Association in Ukui District, Indonesia. Survey and interview data was collected between 2013 and 2015. Results show that upfront costs of certification were 86 euro per hectare. Furthermore, despite generating up to 21% higher revenues from sales, certification created up to an 8%loss of net income per hectare on average per smallholder in the first year after certification, compared to the situation prior to certification. To motivate smallholders for RSPO certification, the economic performance of certified oil palm smallholders should be improved. This can result from further yield increases, a guaranteed premium price or the sales of GreenPalm certificates to provide additional income.

    Verdichting voorkomen is cruciaal : de bodem onder een vruchtbare kringloop

    In het project Vruchtbare Kringloop werken - naast een samenwerking van LTO Noord, ForFarmers Hendrix, Waterschap Rijn en IJssel, Provincie Gelderland, Rabobank en Vitens - 250 agrariërs in de Achterhoek en Liemers middels de KringloopWijzer aan optimalisatie van hun bedrijfsvoering. Het doel is voorop te lopen met kringlooplandbouw, meststoffen optimaal te benutten en de bodem- en waterkwaliteit te verbeteren. Bodemkwaliteit is een belangrijk aspect in de KringloopWijzer: verhoging van de bodembenutting van N met 20 procent leidt tot een stijging van de bedrijfsbenutting van N van 10 procent. Dit artikel gaat in op de belangrijkste knelpunten in bodemkwaliteit op grasland aan de hand van de resultaten van de BodemConditieScore.
    Seed governance. From seed aid to seed system security in fragile areas
    Rietberg, P.I. ; Gevers, H. ; Hospes, O. - \ 2014

    Intergovernmental agencies and development organizations, including Cordaid, consider interventions directed at seed security of utmost importance to support smallholders recovering from conflict situations and disasters, and to contribute to revitalisation of local agricultural production and food security. There is, however, considerable debate about the most appropriate type and strategic level of intervention to enhance smallholders’ seed security in conflict and post-conflict areas. Given the co-existence of different types of interventions and agencies directed at providing seed security, the governance of seed security has become very relevant, questioning what collaborative arrangements between government, business and civil society can help to effectively address seed insecurity. Donors and development practitioners often prefer certified or improved seed to seed from the informal sector. However, farmers’ evaluation criteria can differ from criteria developed by breeders or those setting seed certification standards, and the agro-ecological conditions under which varieties are selected may differ from those on-farm, thus affecting crop performance.
