Small and Mighty Steps for a Sweet, Green Future with Lastiana Yuliandari

Travel to Yogyakarta, Indonesia, with 2023 Asia Foundation Development Fellow Lastiana Yuliandari and her Green Warriors. Together, they are revolutionizing the sugar industry with Aliet Green, her woman-run social enterprise making sustainably grown, ethically harvested coconut sugar. It’s more nutritious, less processed, and better for humans and the environment than traditional sugarcane production, which fuels deforestation and uses massive quantities of water. Walk through coconut farms, where Lastiana empowers women and creates sustainable livelihoods for local farmers.
