    On that account, they are called smallholder farmers. Such condition has an impact on the powerlessness and lack of seri-ousness of farmers in cultivating

    their farmland. Now, the question arises, is there anything that can be made proud by farmers and will the food security continue? said Prof. Suparta to Bali Post.

    According to him, conversion of the farmland occurring during the decade of1997-2007 came to approximately 661 hectares or about 0.8 percent per year. Most

    of the farmlands were converted to tourism facilities namely hotels, restaurants, villas, and building settlement, ofces, industries and others. In addition, similar conver-sion had occurred in the area of moor and forestry plantations.

    Such condition was kindled by structural policies and the shifting in socio-economic values resulting in necessity and compulsion among the farmers to sell their farmland.

    DENPASAR - Farmland dened as cultivated land for agricultural production purposes has now been getting narrower. Chairman of the Indonesian Farmers Association (HKTI)of Bali Chapter, Prof. Nyoman Suparta, stated that every farmer could ideally cultivate 2 hectares of farmland. However, in reality they only cultivated 0.35 hectare. It was a process of impoverishment to farmers.

    We s t r a i s o p t i m i s t i c about it as in 2011 its in-come have been more than t a rg e t e d w h i c h w a s I D R 15,135,334,486. Moreover it was predicted it could go over additional IDR 800 mil-lion as by November 2011 the income has reached IDR 15.3 million. According to Wes t r a t h e i n c o m e c a m e

    from 6,500 sellers spreading at 13 markets in Denpasar with approximate target IDR 1.1 million per month. But it could be less than that such as during religious days yet the most affective would be during Idul Fitri where most of our sellers whos religions is Islam were homecoming, Westra explained.

    Mangupura (Bali Post) The liquefying of Badungs Disaster Aid got its critics

    as many disasters did not get any aid reminding during year DQGDLGVKDYHQWEHHQOLTXHHGPRUHRYHUthe budget have expired as it stayed as Silpa (Budget Leftover) as stated by Badung House of Representatives Commission C member, I Putu Alit Yandinata, last Monday (19/12). Around IDR 3 billion post disaster aids in 2010 are still a leftover when actually many disasters that year got managed straight away. Its weird it is not used when actually many people that got affected have requested for help, Yandinata commented.

    Connecting to this, it seemed the connected institute especially during liquefying budget seemed really slow and if Government claimed the people are helped by social aid, Yandinata admitted it never happened. This statement was agreed by Head of Banjar Banjaran, Abiansemal Daun Yeh Cani Village, Abiansemal, Kadek Suarsawan, whi git his house burnt last 2010 and did not get the aid he hoped. The

    government then responded will give help but funnily the help was essential needs to the seven families in Abianse-mal. We were given essential needs such as sugar, green beans and milk while the disaster aid fund for our house never came out until now, Suarsawan complained.

    Head of Regional Disaster Management Board for Badung, I Gusti Nyoman Adnyana, admitted the liquefying has been stuck as the mechanism involved many institutes such as Copyright Agency and Badung Secretariat Finance Section. It was explained after receiving the peoples report, Quick React Team of the Baord then checked and take data from location which then coordinated with Badung Copyright Agency who then research on the locations damage also repair budget needed. This then reported to the Finance Section of the Secretariat yet this section is collective on some disasters and causing aid very slow to get out. For this it is hoped in the future the Board will make a formula so the liquefying will be quicker yet still as regulated. (kmb25)
