Natural Resources-Based Livelihoods


Indigenous chicken breeds form part of the global Animal Genetic Resources (AnGRs). In Indonesia, as elsewhere, a number of indigenous chicken breeds are in danger of extinction. The major cause of such a decline is the replacement of indigenous breeds with non-indigenous breeds which are perceived to be more productive.

My thesis aims at providing recommendation to develop conservation strategies for indigenous chicken breeds in Java on the following three bases. Firstly, understanding causes of indigenous chicken decline; secondly, determining the risk status of the indigenous breeds, and finally, eliciting the economic value of the breeds to farmers.
