For a middle income country, Indonesia experiences surprisingly high levels of stunting and malnutrition. The relationship between income levels and food security is evidently not an entirely linear one, and this poses a serious development dilemma for Indonesia.
The supervisory team for this project also includes Professor Bill Pritchard.
This project would examine the nutritional paradox Indonesia experiences through a study of malnutrition and its relationship to self-provisioning, livelihood strategy and other social factors.
