International Youth Day 2021: Youth for Resilience. Story of Kiki Katikasari, Indonesia

At UNDRR we work with youth and for youth. To celebrate the International Youth Day on 12 August 2021 and its annual theme "Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health", we have developed a series of stories about young people around the world  working for creating a better sustainable future for all  of us. 

Kiki Kartikasari, Indonesia, is a Project Officer at CER Indonesia, an environmental consultancy company.Smiling girl

Kiki has been working in the field of climate and agriculture since she completed her undergraduate study from Bogor Agriculture, Indonesia in 2007. Realizing that she has a strong interest in this topic, she pursued a higher degree at Wageningen University, The Netherlands and obtained MSc in Plant Sciences in 2012. After more than 15 years in the research industry, large portion of her jobs involved data collection, analysis, capacity building like trainings, and development of methodologies. For the last 3 years she has been working at Carbon and Environmental Research (CER) Indonesia. 

In her work Kiki faces paradoxical position of food production system in climate change context. On the one hand, CER Indonesia often assists agro-industrial companies to know their carbon footprint and start pitching in to the climate actions. On the other hand, rapidly increasing number of world population that drives up food demand is threatened by the impact of climate change. In parallel to research projects, Kiki is also involved in development of government official documents submitted to UNFCCC such as Roadmap of Nationally Determined Contribution or strategic and policy analysis of Paris Agreement implications to Indonesia. 

“We receive a very good feedback and response on our work, but data collection and identification of same indicators relevant to all member countries remains a challenge.”

Group meeting
Back in 2014, ASEAN member states, supported by German Society for International Cooperation, were developing response to promote climate resilience in rice and main crops in Southeast Asian countries. Even though it was only a preliminary study, it could establish a common understanding and further identify concerns, capacity needs and propose regional support strategies to address the issues. 

“It is exciting to know our work can contribute to regional initiative and important milestone like this. The outputs were discussed at the ASEAN Technical Working Group on Agriculture Research and Development and further followed up by establishment of ASEAN network focusing on the promotion of rice, corn and cassava resilience in the region.”

Most ASEAN countries are located near equator and future climate change is generally projected to have negative impacts on food production in the region. Given the projected impacts, policy makers are able to identify relevant adaptation strategies to prevent the risks. Crop insurance has long been introduced in Indonesia. However, the implementation is still evaluated because insurance companies are not happy with yield uncertainties as threshold. Kiki got to work on initiating and developing  climate index insurance, to ensure premium is calculated on reliable threshold without cutting across the benefits for farmers.

Group meeting

"Youth plays an important role in promotion of both sustainable consumption and production. Disengaging youth from the process would be a huge mistake." 

Youth is an age when changes in lifestyle and food habits occur as young people start living away from home for school or work. This is an important period to consider sustainable food consumption. In the context of production, it is important to engage youth, take lead in shaping future farming because youth are proven to be resilient and able to convert challenges into opportunities. Many start up companies and other brilliant initiatives are started by youth. Raising youth awareness to start "nature-positive" food production is the key here.

Kiki Smith: A Gathering, 1980-2005


Widely considered to be one of the most engaging and fascinating artists of our time, Kiki Smith has, over the past 25 years, developed into a major figure in the world of twenty-first-century art. Her subject matter is as wide-ranging as the materials her work has encompassed. In the 1980s, with her earliest figural sculptures in plaster, glass and wax, Smith developed an elaborate vocabulary around the forms and functions of the body and its metaphorical as well as physical relationship to society. By the early 1990s, she began to engage with themes of a more religious and mythological nature. Her re-imaginings of biblical women as inhabitants of physical bodies--rather than as abstract bearers of doctrine--led her to make series of sculptural works related to the figure of the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, Lilith and others. The artist has more recently considered fairy tales and folk narratives as well as nurturing a growing menagerie of work concerned with animals and the natural world. Smith has now earned a considerable reputation as a virtuoso printmaker and draftsperson, and as a re-inventor of the startling sculptural possibilities present in materials ranging from paper and resin to bronze and porcelain. Organized by the Walker Art Center with the full collaboration of the artist, the exhibition Kiki Smith represents the artist's first full-scale monograph.

Word of Wonder

The word kiki has been long connected to the LGBTQ community, but its precise meaning has varied tremendously over the decades.

Meme maker

  One of its first known uses was in the 1930s, when kikiwas gay slang for a gay male who was comfortable being either passive or active during sex. By the 1940–1950s, kikiwas extended to a gay woman who “switched” between the gender identities of “butch” or “fem,” or women who did not identify with either identity in the lesbian community. The historic uses of kiki, possibly derived as a play on queen or chi-chi, for role-bending in same-sex relationships may have informed or influenced later uses of kikiin drag culture.

Within the slang of drag shows, kiki came to mean having “a good time,” normally at a party or social occasion—particularly one that involves gossip. The word kiki was used to describe the sound of laughter in the 1990 documentary Paris is Burning, which depicted drag culture in 1980s New York.

Kikis, or friendly social gatherings for the drag community, became a staple at health outreach organizations. Since then, the “kiki scene” has also rapidly grown out of the NY ballroom subculture. Unlike the more mainstream ballroom culture in drag, which caters to an older generation, the kiki scene is particularly welcoming to young Black/Latino members of the LGBTQ community. This movement was depicted in the 2016 film Kiki, which was an “unofficial sequel” to Paris is Burning. 

In the 2010s, use of the term kiki has further broadened, with it now being used by all communities and demographics, even outside of the LGBTQ community. For example, mothers could have a “mom kiki,” just as a group of gay friends could also have a kiki after dinner. This growth is generally credited to the band the Scissor Sisters, who in 2012 released a song titled “Let’s have a Kiki.” The song’s lyrics actually define a kiki for those who weren’t aware of it, stating: “A kiki is a party, for calming all your nerves. We’re spilling tea and dishing just desserts one may deserve.”

RuPaul’s popular TV show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, which first aired in 2009, has also helped popularize the term.

Kiki is different from kaikai, which traditionally refers to two drag queens having sex with one another but can also mean intercourse between any two gay men. Naturally, a kiki can result in some kaikai happening as well, but the two terms aren’t interchangeable, though it does seem like the term kaikai grew out of kiki at some point.

Her nipples, rather small for the size of her breasts and pink like strawberries, stuck out almost vertically. I went over and pretended to accidentally touch her; but as soon as I did, she took my hand and laid it. On her warm belly, pressing her poured chest against me. I took her away from the crowd to find a place somewhere on the benches.

I walked behind and admired her swaying buttocks.

The piston sliding in it transferred its heat to the bottom of the body, the breasts pressed down by the lover with nipples crawling over. Him, up. The body was engulfed in fire, and it responded, with the strength of a hungry woman, violently ending and pouring splashes of. Its juice into the crotches of the merged bodies. The woman, trembling and convulsively twitching to the beat of the splashes, at times disconnecting from reality, swam on a wave of pleasure.
