Research Assistancy: Interpretations of a cultural landscape
Research Title: Interpretations of a cultural landscape: Case study in implementation of adaptive co-management in Bali’s subak cultural landscape
The team of ProjectKalpa assisted Gabriella Silfwerbrand from Stockholm University during her research in Jatiluwih village in 2012. The research focused on local farmers’ and management committee’s interpretation on cultural values within Cultural Landscape of Bali Province. Stakeholders’ interpretation would contribute to develop an effective management plan and its implementation. ProjectKalpa provided assistance in interview process as well as in brain-storming session. The team also did observation on how local farmers reacted to the nomination of their region as World Heritage Site and how they conformed their ideas and perspectives toward the value of landscape features in Jatiluwih.
