From shifting agriculture to sustainable complex rubber agroforestry systems (jungle rubber) in Indonesia : a history of innovation processes

Penot E.. 2004. In : Babin Didier (ed.). Beyond tropical deforestation : from tropical deforestation to forest cover dynamics and forest development. Montpellier : CIRAD, p. 221-249.

The aim of this chapter is to describe changes in the Indonesian jungle rubber system from the angle of the production of innovation by farmers themselves (indigenous knowledge) and the process of integration of external technical innovations in an overall process of creation of innovation. In other words, the integration of indigenous knowledge at different stages of history with rubber has enabled and continues to enable farmers to rely on the sustainable cropping and farming systems represented by agroforestry systems.
