Methane Emission Estimation Model through Agricultural Mitigation in Mukti Jaya Village as Participant of Kampung Iklim Program
Objective of the study is to analyze percentage of methane emission from agricultural sector and public participation and motivation as well as develop agricultural methane emission model for Mukti Jaya village, Rimba Melintang, Rokan Hilir, Riau. The setting of the study was Mukti Jaya village located in Rimba Melintang, Rokan Hilir Municipality, Riau. It was conducted between July and December, 2015. The population was the natives of Mukti Jaya village, Rimba Melintang, Rokan Hilir Municipality, Riau. There is an increase in the amount of methane emission from agricultural activities in Mukti Jaya village, Rimba Melintang, Rokan Hilir municipality, Riau between 2011 and 2015. However, the amount of methane emission in the village is low because of the agricultural mitigation the farmers conducted. The farmers selected low emission rice variety and applied organic fertilizer. Previous researchers have conducted various studies on methane emission and greenhouse gas emissionin agricultural sector. However, none of the studies discusses methane emission produced by agricultural sector in the villages considered as Kampung Iklim. The topic is important in order to provide an overview about methane emission reduction in agricultural sector. Besides that, similar study has never been conducted in Mukti Jaya village, Rimba Melintang, Rokan Hilir Municipality, Riau, Indonesia. An element that distinguishes this study from the previous ones is the setting (originality of the study).
