The agricultural sector is crucial to the Indonesian economy as agriculture is one of its key sectors; employing and providing income for the majority of Indonesians today. National agricultural products also satisfy the largest demand for these products domestically and Indonesians primarily consume homegrown products. It is thus not surprising that Indonesia is home to many local agricultural products with unique qualities and special characteristics, and that these products are associated with geographical factors such as Cianjur Rice, Cilembu Cassava, Toraja Coffee, Alor Vanili, Banda Nutmeg, Java Tea, Deli Tobacco, etc. In this context, this paper will analyze how geographical indications (GIs) can assist in supporting agricultural development by protecting the unique product attributes and the quality of agricultural products. This paper also highlights that using GIs to identify and market agricultural products may support the development of agricultural products by exposing the benefit that GIs can bring to the agricultural sector, such as increasing productivity, diversity and product availability, improving exports, and increasing the competitiveness of local products both in the national and international market. Moreover, promoting GI protection and using GIs for agricultural products in Indonesia may promote agricultural development and may indirectly contribute to promoting national food security through adding value by incorporating territory-specific cultural, environmental and social qualities into production, processing, and developing of unique local, niche, and special agricultural products.
