Indonesia produces a range of agricultural products with quality reputations based on geographical origin. This report outlines the establishment of geographical indication (GI) for the protection of Kintamani Bali Arabica coffee and implementation considerations for GI systems. It includes background information on GI systems under Indonesian law, characterisation of the Kintamani Bali region and production and quality requirements. Information was collected via desktop study and interviews with various stakeholders in the Kintamani Bali Arabica coffee value chain. Establishment of a GI system requires numerous stakeholders which are detailed in this report along with their roles and the organisation required. An impact analysis encompassing a range of factors such as economic and social impacts, capacity building requirements, successes and opportunities, strengths and limitations is discussed. This program has resulted in: improved farmer understanding of the importance of taste quality and the management practices to achieve it and a collaborative focus by supply chain stakeholders on improving quality. Stakeholder expectations are for sustained premium quality, improved coffee farmer livelihoods, environmental benefits from improved management and greater market opportunities.
