RPJMD Description
RPJMD Period 2009-2013
Supportive Mission Statement in RPJMD Mission 2: To realize a population that is sovereign, prosperous, and environmentally-conscious.
Supportive Policy Direction in RPJMD: Agriculture and Forestry

Strategy: Development of community economy based on the environment and increased appeal for local climate investment through regional economic growth and equitable distribution of development products.

Policy Direction: Development policy for community agriculture, fishery, plantation, farming and small to medium ventures that are competitive, by engaging in agricultural affairs, namely development of agropolitan areas in highlands, by engaging in food crops affairs, namely facilitation of basic and strategic food crops, self-sustenance of rice demand, and intensification and extension of horticultural products besides rice.

Program: Improvement in food supply, along with policy in intensification, extension and diversification of staple food crops with primary target to achieved self-sustenance in rice production of North Sumatra; Forest Protection and Conservation; Maximizing the mangrove reforestation in Coastal Areas of West Coast and East Coast of North Sumatra; Environmental and sustainable development efforts; Forest and Land Rehabilitation; Control over forest conversion by illegal encroachment (illegal logging); Protection of ecological functions of forests; Protection of forest reserves and protected areas; Strict policy towards the exploration of forest products; Implement strict law against illegal logging.

Supportive Policy Direction in RPJMD: Energy, Transport, and Industry Program: Management of renewable energy (hydro, micro-hydro, geothermal, solar and biomass) to the maximum.
