Agro-tourism for Sustainability of SUBAK Institution in Bali (5)

Agro-tourism Development Model Windia and Suamba (2010) reported that the SWOT analysis conducted on some of the Balinese Subak. Those subaks indicate that these are in diversificative position. That is, subak indeed need to do other activities, beyond its traditional activities in agriculture and irrigation management. The study was conducted in Subak Anggabaya, Denpasar; Subak Lodtunduh, Gianyar; and Subak Guama Tabanan. A third of subak’s potential to be developed as agro-tourism area, because the Subak during already familiar with economic activity, close to the object area of tourism,

and is traversed by the traffic of tourism activities, based in Denpasar and Badung regency. During this time, Subak Guama, Tabanan, has long been economically active. Among the maintenance of cattle manure for organic fertilizer, rice cultivation for seed, and the development of cooperatives for the sale of inputs. Capital is used by government assistance for agricultural development with the development of so-called Integrated Agribusiness Group. Furthermore Anggabaya Subak, Denpasar, has been long enough to develop economic activity in the form of savings and

credit groups, with the help of capital from the government. But not yet well developed, as in Subak Guama. Meanwhile Subak Lodtunduh, Gianyar, recently started development of economic enterprises. Namely in the form of farm cooperatives, with a capital of, and assistance from the Department of Agribusiness Faculty of Agriculture, Udayana University. Model of agro-tourism development on each subak can basically be divided in components mindset, social, and artifact / material. Development model as was done because the Subak is part of the culture (Balinese). According Koentjaraningrat (1971) that the culture form includes three components. Mindset that is component (in analogy with Parhyangan Subak system), the social component (in analogy with Pawongan Subak system), and the artifact component / material (in analogy with Palemahan Subak system). The three components are closely related in one system, in order to develop agro-tourism, in subak area. Conclusion Basically, subak institution in Bali is potential to be used as a model of agro-tourism development. The greater the economic activity that has been done in Subak system, the more possible Subak as a model of agrotourism development. Subak that could be developed as agro-tourism area will lead to increased farmer income, improve income subak institutions, generate pride of far­ mers; encourage young people to be active in the agricultural sector, over the function of wetland would be more manageable. All these things will encourage the development

of sustainable agricultural sector, as well as sustainable tourism sector. The tourism sector in Bali will not be able to develop without the support of the existence and presence of the agricultural sector. Economic activity that had been undertaken at the institution indicated that Subak concerned has had experience in the management of other activities outside their traditional activities. Subak is a traditional activity in the field of socio-cultural. Namely, social interaction in mutual assistance activities in the maintenance of irrigation networks, and the ceremony at the temple or the property owned by Subak members. However, the various elements of weakness subak need to get coaching and mentoring. Thus subak will be able to manage economic activities (agro-tourism) well. Subak Lodtunduh, Gianyar and Subak Anggabaya, Denpasar, seems most require attention to the development of the agro-tourism program, which was recorded that after moment not much economic activities has been done yet. While Subak Guama, Tabanan, apparently ready to be developed as a model agro tourism region. During this time it was noted that economic activity of Subak Guama most advanced compared with Subak Lodtunduh, Gianyar and Subak Anggabaya, Denpasar. It seems there is a relationship between economic activities that has been done at one subak, with the process of agro-tourism development to be implemented in the subak region. v *) Wayan Windia, Professor of Agriculture at Udayana University and Assessor THK Awards

World Hindu Summit Saturday (Jun 9) was a historic day for Hindus, namely the gathering of the world Hindu organizations in the World Hindu Summit (WHS) held on June 9-12, 2012. The event was officially opened by Governor of Bali, Made Mangku Pastika, in Wiswa Sabha, the Office of the Governor of Bali. According to Mangku Pastika, the harmony among the fellows was expected to yield a Bali Chapter. “Based on the value of Dharma, we expect this World Hindu Sum-

mit also disseminates the values o ​​ f peace,” said Mangku Pastika. Amidst the event, Chairman of the Steering Committee, Prof. Made Bakta, delivered the implementation of WHS aimed at promoting the solidarity of all Hindu organizations around the world, following the changing status happened to Nepal that previously served as the head of the World Hindu Federation from an empire to a state belonging to the communists. “I expect the divine inspiration (taksu) of Bali could later become one of the driving forces for the realization of this World Hindu Federation,” said Prof. Made Bakta who is also the Rector of the Udayana University. Furthermore, Prof. Made Bakta revealed that our Hindu organization remained weak whereas the Hindu devotee was the third largest after Christianity and Islam. “We still lack of echoes at the level of government in terms of policy and role,” he said.

The head of the Bali”s tourism agency, Ida Bagus Kade Subikshu, said organisations should make every effort to tap into opportunities arising from an aging global demographic. “The prospect for elderly tourism is huge. We’ve been discussing the plan to establish the body with relevant organisations,” Kade told media in Denpasar (11 June).

Chairman of the WHS Committee, Ketut Gede Putra Dharma, added that a total of 200 delegates attended the WHS 2012 coming from all over the world except for the representatives of the African continent. “Participants of the WHS are from India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Nepal, Oman, Australia, the United States and Britain,” said Dharma Putra. There were also representatives from the Hindu Wiwitan and Kaharingan and element of the Hindu Dharma Council of Indonesia (PHDI). Declares Bali Charter The Hindu World Summit (WHS) had issued a Bali Charter on the three-day conference held on Monday (Jun 11). It was revealed by Chairman of the WHS Committee, Gede Ketut Dharma Putra, during a

press conference in the Wiswa Sabha Building. Some contents of the Bali Charter were to bring together the activities of Hindu spiritual globally, to promote human values ​​of Hinduism and to absorb the Hindu culture based on universal concept named Satya (truth), Shivam (wisdom), and Sundaram (purity). Besides, it also meant to echo the mutual respect among the fellows and to strengthen the harmonization based on the Tri Hita Karana concept. “It also decided to immediately establish the World Hindu Parishad (Council) in Bali,” said Dharma Putra. According to him, later all the Hindu organizations would come together, but without reducing the rights of autonomy of each organization. In the future, formation of the committee was expected to establish of the World Hindu Parishad targeted to be realized in 2013. With the formation of the Hindu organization, the role of Hindu as the third largest devotees in the world after Christianity and Islam could strengthen the peace that emanated from Bali through its divine inspiration. v BTNewspaper/BD/Krisna

Future of Travel Agencies:

Bali is Keen to Welcome Grey Nomads Bali is laying out the welcome mat for golden oldies. The island”s tourism bosses plan to establish a special body to develop tourism for older visitors, citing a rising trend among elderly travelers across the globe.

Implementation of the WHS was expected to establish the World Hindu Federation and strengthen the role of Hindu later. According to Prof. Made Bakta, any Hindu organizations would coalesce into a single entity, but did not diminish the right of autonomy of each organization.

Kade said Bali had so far failed to effectively cater to an older tourist segment. “Bali has 16 tourist areas. We may develop some of them to accommodate older tourists,” he added. Bali drew 2.7 million foreign visitors in 2011, which represented more than one-third of the total visitors to Indonesia, according to the Central Statistics Agency. Kade said older visitors, or those over 55-years-old, made up a large percentage of international tourists coming from the US, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. v

Both Small and Large Expected to Dominate The future of the travel agent business: increasingly dominated by one or two employee agencies though four large groups now dominate the industry and control three-quarters or 75% of the market. So says research firm IBIS World. Those four are Carlson Cos., American Express, Expedia and Priceline.com, said the report called “Travel Agencies in the US.” The top four industry agencies “tend to dominate the domestic and international business and holiday travel business at the national, and increasingly international, level,” the report said. But the report found strong growth in agencies at the other extreme, or with less than $5 million in

annual revenues. After a slowdown in recent years, the industry is set to return to growth. The report says that growth will be driven by internet technology as consumers increasingly choose online travel agencies for flexibility and efficiency. “The era of storefront travel agencies is entering a long-term decline and being replaced by online services, which offer a relatively high-profit, low-cost way to handle transactions,” the report said. However, IbisWorld also found that travel agency profit margins are low, at 7.6%, “reflecting the high level of competition in the industry.” v BTNewspaper/David Wilkening
