Jakarta (ANTARA) – Minister of Home Affairs Tito Karnavian asked regional heads in Indonesia to utilize underused agricultural land to be used productively to increase food availability in order to achieve food self-sufficiency.

“We ask all regions to convert unproductive and unused land into agricultural land,” he said after attending the Planting Area Expansion Coordination Meeting and signing a memorandum of understanding with the Minister of Agriculture in Jakarta, Friday.

According to Karnavian, utilizing underutilized land can effectively increase local food production, thereby helping reduce dependence on food imports and encouraging the country’s food independence.

Apart from recommending the use of unused land into productive agricultural land, Karnavian also reminded all local governments not to convert agricultural land into business land.

Karnavian noted that in the future his ministry would prepare a circular addressed to all regional heads in Indonesia.

Next, the ministry will form a special team to evaluate the circular to determine which regions have complied with it and which have not.

He emphasized that the central government will give rewards to regional heads who succeed in carrying out their duties well, while reminding them that there will be penalties for regional heads who do not carry out their duties optimally.

Minister of Agriculture Andi Amran Sulaiman stated that optimizing land and pumping water is the right step because it has proven to be a solution for Indonesia to achieve food self-sufficiency and become a world food estate.

He said that the agricultural sector must receive attention, considering that Indonesia will face extreme climates, including long droughts, in the future.

The Minister of Finance hopes that collaboration between the central and regional governments will become stronger as a key to achieving food self-sufficiency.

Sulaiman noted that his ministry had issued short-term policies to achieve food self-sufficiency, such as optimizing 400 thousand hectares of swamp land, pumping water to one million hectares of rice fields, and transforming 250 thousand hectares of traditional agricultural land into modern agriculture. land.
