Agrarian Reform in Indonesia: Analyze Concepts and Their Implementation from a Governance Perspective https://jagb.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/34573 <p><em>Analysis of the relationship between inequality, agrarian reform, and corruption as well as public administration reform has not been discussed, both in terms of the formation and implementation of agrarian reform in Indonesia. This article aims to explore the concept and implementation of agrarian reform, as well as the influence of governance conditions in the management of natural resources in the implementation of agrarian reform. With the characteristics of agrarian issues in Indonesia, land administration and those related to the implementation of redistribution of benefits from the use of natural resources need to be strengthened with appropriate concepts or theories, including public information disclosure as a fulfillment of substantive and deliberative implementation of democracy. In addition, by referring to experiences in other countries, agrarian reform needs to be carried out by reducing the level of clientelism and implemented through a number of corruption prevention and prosecution programs, especially in the fields of land and other natural resources.</em></p> Hariadi Kartodiharjo Eko Cahyonob Copyright (c) 2021 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-01-17 2022-01-17 27 1 1 10.7226/jtfm.27.te.1 Evaluation of Soft Skill Training to Strengthen Collaborative Management of National Parks in Sumatera, Indonesia https://jagb.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/34735 <p><em>A series of soft skill training in four national parks of Sumatra Island were conducted by PILI Green Network NGO, DG of Natural Resources and Essential Ecosystem Conservation of the MoEF, and </em><em>Sumatran Tiger Project-UNDP for 12 months in 2019. T</em><em>he training aims at improving </em><em>soft skill capacity of the national park staff on conflict management and collaborative actions with the communities in the buffer zone. This paper aims 1) to evaluate the soft skill training programme achievement by employing </em><em>Kirkpatrick’s evaluation model</em><em>; 2) to analyse factors of Training Program participants that influence on the individual soft skill enhancement by using multiple linear regression analysis. The results show that soft skill training was effective to increase the knowledge and skill of the participating staff, especially in participatory approaches, conflict management, and the development of a collaborative business model. Three factors, including </em><em>work experience, the suitability of background education and </em><em>similar training experience, have significant influences on the individual soft skill enhancement. Training design, which was bottom-up and participatory based on the needs of the resorts as a spearheading of national park management, contributes to the success of the training implementation. The training has created a ‘common room’ for the participating staff and the communities in terms of opening communication and development of collaborative action plans at each national park</em><em>.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Thomas Oni Veriasa Muchamad Muchtar Evi Indraswati Ajeng Miranti Putri Copyright (c) 2021 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-01-17 2022-01-17 27 9 9 10.7226/jtfm.27.te.9 Complexity of Unsolved Forest Tenurial Conflict: A Case of Way Terusan Forest Management Unit, Lampung Province, Indonesia https://jagb.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/35604 <p><em>Effective forest management is challenging to achieve when there is uncertainty about who controls forest areas. Land tenure issues can arise from local communities, immigrants, the private sector, or the government. Overlapping rights in forest areas are very likely to occur due to the licensing system's lack of integration and the inaccuracy with which the problem of forest land use claims. The Forest area of Register 47 is the case where the forest tenurial conflict resolution is theoretical and takes into account the existence of forest communities and conflict resolution programs that have been implemented by the Forest Management Unit </em>(<em>FMU</em>)<em>. This study employed case study approach carried out with an in-depth study in the historical study about the conflicts and juridical review in Way Terusan FMU, Lampung Province. The collected data was then validated by triangulating scheme by the observation and documentation. The findings&nbsp; show that in terms of legal, FMU is the legal authority in forest area organizations, especially after regional regulation since 2019. However, the encroachment began in the 1990s when about 900 households were relocated to the area without the Forestry Ministry accord. Various legalization permits were submitted to the central government, but they were not deemed as a viable option. Since the regional regulation of forest area law's introduction in 2019, the FMU has been the primary actor in forest management. In order to resolve all conflicts, the FMU might apply for some effective forestry partnership cooperation programs.</em></p> Christine Wulandari Yulia Rahma Fitriana Indra Gumay Febryano Susni Herwanti Hari Kaskoyo Hendika Jaya Putra Copyright (c) 2021 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-01-17 2022-01-17 27 21 21 10.7226/jtfm.27.te.21 The Potential of Land Abandonment in Bogor Regency for Community Forest Enterprises https://jagb.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/34126 <p><em>The abandoned land and indicated abandoned land are considered critical land or land that is less productive. Those lands covered about 13,000 ha of Bogor Regency area, with the critical land area of around ​​93,467.51 ha (32%). To reduce the area of critical land and increase land productivity in Bogor can be done by optimizing the abandoned land for private forest use. This study aimed to analyze the potential and opportunities for private forest use in abandoned land. The method used was an investigative approach with quantitative and qualitative descriptive analysis. This study showed that in terms of land characteristics and biophysical conditions, the abandoned land could be developed for private forest business, especially to cultivate forest business, such as sengon (Albizia chinensis), kayu afrika (Maesopsis eminii), jabon (Neolamarckia cadamba), mahoni (Swietenia mahagoni), and kayu manis (Cinnamomum verum). The majority of respondents (65%) were willing to do partnerships in private forests. However, several factors are needed to support this business, i.e., regulations in the form of incentives and disincentives from local governments, investors, facilitators, and market access.</em></p> Handian Purwawangsa Hariadi Kartodihardjo Dodik Ridho Nurrochmat Ernan Rustiadi Copyright (c) 2021 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-01-17 2022-01-17 27 32 32 10.7226/jtfm.27.te.32 Political Economy of Land Use in Indonesia: Trap and Curse of Natural Forests https://jagb.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/34563 <p><em>The allocation of land use in Indonesia is very inefficient, while the distribution of tenure is unequal. Half of the land for cultivation is held by forestry, and the other half is used by various other sectors. Most Indonesian farmers are small- scale farmers who do not meet economies of scale. Agrarian reforms aimed at overcoming inefficiency in land use, eliminating inequality in land tenure, and promoting rural areas’ prosperity need to involve land for cultivation allocated for forestry. This paper is written based on the author’s experience of interacting with various parties related to land issues, forest areas and agrarian reform through various forums, such as official meetings, focus group discussions, seminars, workshops, symposiums, one-on-one discussions (interviews), and interactions through social media. Agrarian reform, which has been launched since 1960, has not been able to be realized until today. The fight seems to involve two large groups, namely environmentalists and developmentalists, but this kind of grouping is likely to be misleading. Environmental issues may only be used as an instrument to obtain economic benefits as well, not for the environment itself.</em></p> Sudarsono Soedomo Copyright (c) 2022 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-01-17 2022-01-17 27 42 42 10.7226/jtfm.27.te.42
