The year 2020 began with the largest pandemic in recent history, exactly 100 years after the Spanish flu pandemic that killed more than 50 million people in 1918-1920.

Apart from the impact on health, the world is also worried about the big impact on agriculture that will cause a global food crisis (FAO 2020). In March-May 2020, news about global food crisis dominated news related to agriculture and food. In April, came the report The Global Report on Food Crisis 2020, the result of a study by 16 world organizations related to the "acute food crisis" that will afflict many countries in the world. In the same month, President Jokowi warned the Onward Cabinet regarding the threat of a food crisis in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The President's warning has also become the basis for a program to increase national food production known as a food estate, especially in the former one-million hectare peatland project. Six ministries are directly involved in this major project: the Office of the Coordinating Economic Affairs Minister, the Agriculture Ministry, the State-Owned Enterprises Ministry, the Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Planning Ministry/National Land Agency, the Public Works and Housing Ministry and the Defense Ministry. The project was then expanded to North Sumatra and Papua with an area of about 2 million hectares.
