Abstract
Crowned as the one of the most productive area of paddy farming and also the largest rice consumers in Indonesia, West Java’s now facing an imminent obstacle of losing its capability of fulfilling the demand for rice. It all due to both land use changed and a rise of total rice consumption throughout years. To acknowledging this condition, this paper aims to calculate demand of rice in West Java based on number of productive land requires. Ecological Footprint (EF) calculations were conducted to show current level of EF and available biological capacity (BC) in West Java. Both results then compared to indicate whether there are biological capacity surpluses or deficits.
