The project team met with the policy working group recently in Bogor in order to initiate dialogue with key policy makers in the dairy sector. Prof. Wendy Umberger from Centre for Global Food and Resources led the meeting along with Dr.Arief Daryanto from SB-IPB, and Dr. Erwidodo from ICASEPS. The policy working group meeting presented with an opportunity to discuss these objectives and align the objectives of the Indodairy project to help achieve the broader objectives outlined in the blue print. The Indodairy project aims to play the role of an integral catalyst in bringing about growth and development in the dairy sector in Indonesia and this was resonated throughout the entire dialogue held with the policy working group.
