There are bright forecasts for Indonesia's economy this year, but the prospects for its rice fields appear far dimmer.

Food price volatility does not significantly affect countries that do not depend on imported food; however, it will hit food-importing countries, commonly inhabited by large populations of poor people, including Indonesia.
Four major driving causes of food price volatility are weather, high demand (especially from China and India), low output and biofuel. Other factors include unscrupulous agricultural practices that ignore the ecosystem equilibrium and will potentially threaten a sustainable food supply. The apparent effect of climate change on the rising prices of agricultural commodities also indicates the need for a fundamental paradigm shift in our agricultural practices.
