Abstract

As a region under dry climate, East Nusa Tenggara relatively possesses limited tree species to be used as bioresources by local community for their daily needs.However, some native savanna plant species with great potential has been exploited since long time. So far, Gewang or Tune {Corypha utan Lamk.), a still-wild native palm species were exploited for traditional food, drink and rural industry.A preliminary study was done to assess the potential of this palm species as source for developing new food,and drink, and raw material for alcohol industry. The chemical content of its product (including starch and other derivates such as sugar and traditional alcoholic drink), are potentially promising for further source as new food, drink and alcohol industries. But overexploited action against Gewang, palem/ palm, Corypha utan Lamk., potensi/ potential, makanan dan minuman baru/ new food and drink, industri alkohol/ alcohol industry.this plant in its wild status, need further urgent steps to be developed in plots as a crop plant; whilen the future, these plots may be offered as assets for carbon emission (Kyoto Protocol) in global climate change through CDM(Clean Development Mechanism) programs.
