What: deliverables

MJ45 unfolds in 3 phases. But rather than moving from theory to implementation, it applies an iterative process. Site specific case studies, regional planning strategies, and island-wide data modelling will occur in parallel. Insights gained at each scale inform strategies at the other scales. Theory and practice evolve hand in hand. The process is designed so that the results of each phase mark a distinct milestone that are presented on the platform and in public presentations. 

Phase I: knowledge gathering and sharing. The first seminar will present analyses of the ten site reflecting typical landscape scenarios. For the two pilot sites the outcomes of the community-driven land use integration strategy are documented and shared. Phase II: detailed plan development for the two pilot sites, including their economic, stakeholder and policy constraints. Phase III: Implementation through local partners of the two pilot projects. Presentation of our methods and conclusions for a national desakota policy framework.


The need for more highways is curbed, in order to halt agricultural fragmentation and local congestion.

Kebutuhan akan pembangunan jalan raya menjadi dibatasi, untuk mencegah fragmentasi lahan pertanian dan kemacetan lokal.

Sprawl is curbed by restructuring local intersections and preventing cars from stopping along local roads.

‘Sprawl’ diatasi dengan merestrukturisasi persimpangan lokal dan mencegah kendaraan berhenti di sepanjang jalan lokal.

Desakota agriculture is diversified with fruit trees, planted along waterways and streams to strengthen economic output, self-reliance, biodiversity, store carbon and regulate hydrological systems.

Pertanian desakota terdiversifikasi atas pepohonan yang ditanam di sepanjang saluran dan sungai untuk memperkuat perekonomian dan kemandirian desakota, meningkatkan keanekaragaman hayati, menyimpan karbon, dan mengatur sistem hidrologi.
