In Seven Years Rice Field Area in Badung Rises 197 HectaresBADUNG County government under the leadership of Regent Gde Agung, aside from being successful to increase the food production, also managed to minimize the land conversion in the past seven years. The Time Series Data show that land conversion in Badung County in 2003 through 2005 ran at the average of 101.33 hectares (ha) per year. This figure actually decreased in 2006 through 2012 with the average of only 17.57 hectares per year.

It was regarded as one of the efforts to implement the policy in favor of the environmental preservation (pro-environment) and cultural preservation (pro-culture) also constituting the part of five basic principles of the sustainable development in Badung County.
