Three Generations of Forest Peoples’ Empowerment in Indonesia: Process Towards Sustainable and Equitable Forest Management https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/29188 <p><em>Human activities that alter land cover have destroyed natural ecosystems and caused conflict. In Indonesia, community-based forest management (CBFM) policies implemented by the government seek to empower communities, ameliorate forest conversion, and reduce environmental conflict. This article critically assesses contemporary CBFM policy in Indonesia by analyzing its history and outcomes through policy analysis. To systematically review previous literature on CBFM, this research uses the PRISMA method. It finds that communities are often able to manage forest areas sustainably through sociocultural systems that combine management customs and culture. Empowerment through CBFM policy therefore promises to promote community subsistence, equity, and security regarding forest management. However, granting total resource rights to communities can result in land conversion unless managerial safeguards are in place. Many studies find that the clarity of land boundaries, the consistency of regulation, and the partiality of land governance drive CBFM program success. To facilitate land governance for the successful implementation of Indonesian social forestry, communities need access rights, authority to manage forests, and sufficient knowledge transfer to participate in formal forest management. In contrast to previous iterations of CBFM in Indonesia, current social forestry policy acknowledges these governance needs and seeks to implement them.</em></p> Jun Harbi Yukun Cao James Thomas Erbaugh Faris Rafi Almay Widagdo Jerry Mauri Supriyanto Noril Milantara Copyright (c) 2020 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-08-13 2020-08-13 26 2 91 104 Enhancing the Role of the District Government in Decentralized Forest Management https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/28237 <p><em>Following the enactment of Law Number 23 of 2014 on the Regional Government,</em> <em>which superseded Law Number 22 of 1999 and Law Number 32 of 2004</em><em>, now</em><em> the local government has no longer holds an authority to manage state forest areas, except “</em><em>g</em><em>rand </em><em>f</em><em>orest </em><em>p</em><em>ark” </em>(<em>Taman Hutan Raya</em>)<em> located in their respective administrative areas. The management of production forests and protected forests </em>(<em>located at state forest areas</em>)<em> is the authority and responsibility of the provincial government, while the management of conservation forests is the authority of the central government.</em> <em>The success of forest management and management program activities is determined, among others, by government and local government policies and their implementation at the site level. By considering ntthe complexity of forest management, the context of decentralization, and available resources as well as constrained authority, this study aims to identify the level of importance, priorities, and main roles of district governments in forest management by applying the analytic network process </em>(<em>ANP</em>)<em> method. &nbsp;This study suggests</em> <em>that the district government could play a significant role in building social capital, which</em> <em>serves as a first step in developing</em><em> collaborative forest management</em><em> by promoting the optimization of multipurpose forests to preserve forests.</em></p> Ristianto Pribadi Dodik Ridho Nurrochmat Endang Suhendang Hermanto Siregar Copyright (c) 2020 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-08-14 2020-08-14 26 2 114 122 Evaluation of Tree Detection and Segmentation Algorithms in Peat Swamp Forest Based on LiDAR Point Clouds Data https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/30179 <p><em>Application of LiDAR for tree detection and tree canopy segmentation has been widely used in conifer plantation forest in temperate countries with high accuracy, however its application on tropical natural forest especially peat swamp forest hardly found.

However, the interaction effects of both treatments on eucalyptus performance are still not deeply understood, even though these treatments require high investment. This circumstance may potentially inhibit the managers to formulate more efficient maintenance strategy for increasing stand productivity. This study examined the interaction effects of fertilization and weed control on growth, biomass, and carbon storage in eucalyptus hybrid </em>(<em>E. pellita </em>x <em>E. brassiana</em>). <em>Results demonstrated that without both treatments, the average stand volume only reached 37.9 m<sup>3</sup> ha <sup>-1</sup> with the mean biomass and carbon storage approached 25.4 and 12.7 Mg ha <sup>-1</sup>, respectively. In contrast, the use of both treatments simultaneously improved the mean volume around 60.4 m<sup>3</sup> ha <sup>-1</sup> with the average biomass and carbon storage closed to 37.6 and 18.8 Mg ha <sup>-1</sup>. Furthermore, the development of eucalyptus hybrid using fertilization without weed control only gained the mean wood production approximately 58.7 m<sup>3</sup> ha <sup>-1</sup> while the practice of weed control without fertilization only resulted the average volume nearly 43.7 m<sup>3</sup> ha <sup>-1</sup>. These facts indicated fertilization exhibited higher influence than weed control on the performance of eucalyptus hybrid. </em></p> Pandu Yudha Adi Putra Wirabuana Ronggo Sadono Sergian Juniarso Fahmi Idris Copyright (c) 2020 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-08-14 2020-08-14 26 2 144 154 Institutional Capacity of Forest Management Unit in Promoting Sustainable Community-Based Forest Management. Case Study of Forest Management Unit in Central Sulawesi Province, Indonesia https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/30201 <p><em>The main issue of forest management policies in Indonesia is strengthening the role of Forest Management Unit (FMU) and community-based forest management. This study describes the performance of FMU and the priority needs for the institutional strengthening of FMU to promote community-based forest management in Central Sulawesi Province. The research applied a case study's descriptive method by exploring, classifying, and understanding the meaning of the problems encountered by the object examined. The study shows that the performance of the FMUs was not yet optimal in promoting community-based forest management. This problem attributed to the weak institutional capacity of FMU. Several aspects of the institution need improvements, including strengthening its capacity at the resort level, fulfilling the needs and capacity building of extension staff, as well as providing a legal mechanism for financial management to facilitate its business activities and cooperation. These priority needs were affected by government bureaucratic issues. It necessary the policy formulation governing the strengthening of community-based forest management in the FMU area that supports the independence goals of FMU.</em></p> Sudirman Daeng Massiri Adam Malik Golar Hamzari Bramasto Nugroho Copyright (c) 2020 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-08-13 2020-08-13 26 2 169 177
