The Postharvest Education Foundation offers global postharvest e-learning programs, training materials and participatory workshops on appropriate postharvest technologies for participants in more than 15 developing countries. In association with Udayana University, we are launching a new program “Small-Scale Postharvest Horticultural Technologies Short Course/ Study Tour” in August 2014 to be offered for up to 45 participants in Bali, Indonesia.

As a major global tourist destination, the demand in Bali for a large variety of fresh produce has developed following the country of origins of tourists and their eating habits. The varieties of fresh produce demanded by hotels and restaurants have increased since 1970s, and now more than 100 types of fresh produce include vegetables (leafy vegetables, fruity vegetables, tubers, roots, shoots, immature flowers) and herbs. Cut flowers are also increasing in demand especially for hotels and restaurants. The small scale farmers in Bali have to be creative, innovative, efficient and effective in production and postharvest handling in order to meet the dynamic demands of the markets; otherwise they will be pushed out of the local markets by large scale enterprises from outside of Bali, and especially those competitors coming in from overseas. To strengthen the competitiveness of small scale fresh produce farmers in the highland production area of Bedugul, Udayana University has been implementing the Value Chain Partnership Program under the long term project HI-Link to help farmers and intermediaries to create higher value markets via an efficient and effective value chains system.

Program Title: Small-Scale Postharvest Horticultural Technologies Short Course/Study Tour

Site: Udayana University, Bali

Duration: 5 days of training, demonstrations, local tours

Maximum number of participants:45

Registration Fee:US$1000 per person

Konferensi Nasional Engineering Perhotelan IV

Konferensi Nasional Engineering Perhotelan IV

“PERAN RISET dan TEKNOLOGI UNTUK PERKEMBANGAN INDUSTRI PARIWISATA”

Latar Belakang

Industri Pariwisata Indonesia merupakan salah satu penggerak perekonomian nasional yang potensial untuk mengerakkan pertumbuhan perekonomian yang lebih baik. Devisa dari pariwisata merupakan kontributor terbesar ketiga devisa negara, setelah minyak dan gas bumi serta minyak kelapa sawit. Perkembangan industri pariwisata tidak terlepas dari kemajuan peralatan teknologi yang digunakan. Pengembangan industri pariwisata kreatif, teknologi dan teknologi informasi industri pariwisata, aplikasi engineering system, prosedur maintenance bangunan, sistem utilitas dan aspek keamanan-keselamatan, serta manajemen industri perhotelan merupakan tantangan bagi ilmuwan dan praktisi sebagai usaha pengembangan pariwisata.

Sistem energi baru dan terbarukan dan pengembangan model pemanfaatan energi terbarukan dalam dunia perhotelan, audit dan manajemen energi, optimasi penggunaan energi dan pengenalan material-material penunjang penghematan energi merupakan tema yang perlu diperkenalkan dan dipopulerkan. Peran pengembangan riset dan teknologi menjadi faktor dominan yang dibutuhkan untuk mendapatkan produk teknologi yang unggul, mandiri,  berdaya saing  dan ramah kepada  lingkungan.  Hasil riset dan teknologi perlu dikomunikasikan agar dapat digunakan  secara maksimal.

Konferensi nasional ini dilaksanakan sebagai forum diskusi dan bertukar informasi antara peneliti, praktisi dan pengguna jasa pariwisata, sehingga didapatkan satu visi yang bermanfaat bagi perkembangan pariwisata nasional.
