Bali urged to stockpile food in anticipation of shortages

Udayana University professor Dewa Ngurah Suprapta is urging the local administration to create food reserves in anticipation of potential shortages as Bali is relying on outside supplies.

The food reserve is adopted from a similar concept made by the Balinese in the past. In the past, each household in Bali had a granary, known as a klumpu or jineng, where unhusked rice was stored. A larger reserve could hold crops after harvesting. Having a stable reserve would protect the island from fluctuations in the price and overall supply of rice.
