Lembaga Konsumen Yogyakarta (Yogyakarta Consumers Institute (YCI)

YCI’s 2021 campaign aims to build the capacity of women farmers to cultivate, harvest and market rhizome plants in their home yards. The campaign if successful will help to conserve local rhizome plants as a wealth of biodiversity and increase local family incomes through the establishment of herbal medicine businesses. Activities will include awareness training on the benefits of local rhizomes and the importance of sharing resources in the community, as well as practising rhizome planting and cultivation in rural village communities.
