Public and private partners from Indonesia and the Netherlands work together on improving the food and nutrition security situation in the livestock sector in Indonesia.
Poultry meat and dairy products are important animal protein products for the consumers in Indonesia. Every year the demand for these products is increasing. It is essential that the production and supply of these products are organised in a safe and responsible manner. Both public and private sector partners in these livestock sectors have a responsibility to realise the sustainable growth of these livestock sectors and that the Indonesian consumers will continue to have access to safe and affordable products.
The Dutch – Indonesian programme on Food Security on Livestock (DIFS-Live) focusses on the development of the poultry and dairy sub-sectors in West Java. The goal of DIFS-Live is to develop viable models for domestic production and supply of affordable, nutritious and safe animal-based products.
DIFS-Live is structured around the following four components:
- Component 1: Consumer awareness & supply chain initiatives
- Component 2: Improving poultry processing standards
- Component 3: Poultry farming systems
- Component 4: Dairy feed improvements
The Directorate General (DG) for Livestock and Animal Health Services at the Ministry of Agriculture of Indonesia and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (EKN) in Jakarta jointly supervise the DIFS-Live programme. The two parties signed a Memorandum of Cooperation in July 2014 that defines the objectives, main activities and the different roles and responsibilities.
DIFSLIVE is financed by the Government of the Netherlands and Dutch and Indonesian private sector partners. The Dutch Embassy has contracted the Central Veterinary Institute (CVI) of the Animal Sciences Group (ASG) of Wageningen University & Research as the main coordination and implementation partner of DIFS-Live. CVI is working together with a range of different organisations in the public, private and knowledge sectors in Indonesia and the Netherlands.
