Muktasam Abdurrahman: Better Welfare for Indonesian Farmers
Dr Muktasam Abdurrahman, a lecturer at Universitas Mataram, is a two-time Australia Awards Scholarships recipient with a Master in Agricultural Science from The University of Melbourne and a PhD in Natural and Rural Systems Management from the University of Queensland. Throughout the years, Dr Muktasam still maintains his relationship with Australia through various projects and research collaborations, including community-based commercial forestry projects and the Kanoppi program. It is through these projects that Dr Muktasam, together with his Australian colleagues, continues to increase the livelihood of Indonesian farmers by developing poultry and livestock farming, organic farming and forest management, including herbal plants.
