Crafting Local Institution Using Social-Ecological System Framework for Sustainable Rattan Governance in Lore Lindu National Park https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/27548 <p class="MDPI31text"><em>Rattan is the most important non-forest timber product utilized by communities adjacent Lore Lindu National Park (LLNP). The establishment community conservation agreement (CCA) in 2001 was unable to prevent rattan depletion. Then, a local institution called community conservation partnership (CCP) has been recently proposed. Therefore, the objective of this study is to explore how to craft a local institution of CCP for sustainable rattan governance in LLNP using Social-Ecological Systems (SES) Framework. The study was conducted in LLNP area and Ngata Toro, a buffer zone village of LLNP. We conducted rattan inventory and collected social data by interview for analyzing CCP development using SES framework. The results showed that CCP is most likely to be successful in implementing due to several reasons. Firstly, the establishment of constitutional-choice rules made clear the nested enterprise. Secondly, the reallocation of CCP location to the traditional zone increase the boundary clarity. Thirdly, transferring rights to the Ngata Toro community will make effective co-management, increase the legitimacy of rattan utilization, decrease potential conflicts among resource unit users and reducing monitoring cost. Finally, deciding the rattan harvesting quota will ensure the rattan ecological and livelihood sustainability. With the clarity of system boundaries and property rights, we argue that CCP institutions will bring many benefits in many ways. Overall, most variables of SES framework can be used to analyses the readiness of CCP institutional arrangement for sustainable rattan management in LLNP. </em></p> Yulianto Yulianto Rinekso Soekmadi Agus Hikmat Cecep Kusmana Copyright (c) 2019 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-12-20 2019-12-20 25 3 135 145 10.7226/jtfm.25.3.135 Stakeholder Management of Kawasan Konservasi Mangrove dan Bekantan in Tarakan City https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/25479 <em>Kawasan Konservasi Mangrove dan Bekantan (KKMB) is a protected area that is managed by Tarakan City Government for mangrove and proboscis monkey conservation. KKMB has a few stakeholders involved in the area. In order to create collaborative management, there must be conducted a stakeholder analysis and management. The research aimed to give stakeholder management recommendations for KKMB. Research data was collected through interviews and questionnaires. This research was also conducted to compare two methods in stakeholder analysis, Reed et al. method and Driscoll and Starik method. The result shows that Driscoll and Starik method is more objective to be used for measuring the stakeholder priority. PT Pertamina EP had to be the first priority in stakeholder management because it has great power, urgency, and legitimacy towards KKMB. In order to improve the relationship between stakeholders in KKMB there must be applied a practical strategy. This strategy strives for optimizing the area advantages for all stakeholders and also fulfill the stakeholders' needs for the area, which are facility maintenance, area sustainability improvement, and optimization of tourism activity. </em> Rifky Edo Herlangga Sambas Basuni Copyright (c) 2019 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-12-20 2019-12-20 25 3 146 153 10.7226/jtfm.25.3.146 Fertilization Effects on Early Growth, Aboveground Biomass, Carbon Storage, and Leaf Characteristics of Eucalyptus pellita F. Muell. in South Sumatera https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/27616 <p><em>Fertilization is one of the nutrient management efforts that play an important role in improving the productivity of plantation forests. It was conducted to provide adequate nutrients for the plant at the initial growth period when the availability of soil nutrients is very limited. The optimum dose of fertilization for each plant is different depending on its requirement, climate, and soil properties. This study investigated the influence of fertilization on early growth, aboveground biomass, carbon storage, and leaf characteristics in Eucalyptus pellita in the sixth months after field establishment. An experiment comprising four treatments of fertilization, i.e., 0, 75, 133, and 167 kg ha -1 of triple superphosphate 46% P2O5 was set up using randomized complete block design with five replications. Four indicators were selected to evaluate the early growth of E. pellita, namely survival rate, height, the collar of diameter, and crown projection area. Aboveground biomass and carbon storage of E. pellita were estimated in each component, covering stem, bark, branches, and leaves. The leaf characteristics of E. pellita were described by individual leaf area, individual leaf dry weight, specific leaf area, and leaf area index. Results showed that the different treatment of fertilization did not have a meaningful effect on survival rate, individual leaf area, and specific leaf area. The treatments presented a substantial effect on other indicators such as height, diameter, crown projection area, aboveground biomass, carbon storage, individual leaf dry weight, and leaf area index. Despite the fact that the highest mean of height and collar of diameter were observed in the dose of 167 kg ha -1, the greatest average of aboveground biomass and carbon storage were noted in the rate of 133 kg ha -1. Nevertheless, this study did not find a highly different performance of E. pellita between both treatments statistically.</em></p> Pandu Yudha Adi Putra Wirabuana Ronggo Sadono Sergian Juniarso Copyright (c) 2019 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-12-20 2019-12-20 25 3 154 163 10.7226/jtfm.25.3.154 Food Security Status in Agroforestry Landscapes of Way Betung Watershed, Indonesia and Molawin Dampalit Sub Watershed, Philippines https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/27907 <p><em>Indonesia and Philippines are homes of biodiversity in Southeast Asia. In recent years, however, there has been a decline in biodiversity brought about by land use change. This condition poses threat on the food security of communities around the watersheds. </em><em>The type and volume of main food </em><em>items </em><em>depend on </em><em>the</em><em> ecological </em><em>and physiological conditions of the watersheds, in this case, </em><em>Way Betung and Molawin Dampalit. </em><em> </em><em>When edible food is sufficient </em><em>and available </em><em>in an area, </em><em>there is higher livelihood that the communities are food secured. This paper argues based on research which has been conducted in May to November 2015 that the food security of communities in the selected agroforestry landscapes in Way Betung and Molawin Dampalit have moderate. Levels of its food security based on four dimensions, namely:</em><em> food availability, food accessibility, food stability and food utilization. </em><em>Amounted 261 Indonesia farmer’s respondents and 106 Philippine’s respondents mentioned </em><em>that the farm households generally practice agroforestry where the production of short-term and medium-term agricultural crops, woody perennials and livestock are deliberately combined. The type of crops grown by the farm households contribute to the level of food security. </em></p> Christine Wulandari Leila Dimayuga Landicho Rowena Esperenza Dicolen Cabahug Romnick Salvago Baliton Irwan Sukri Banuwa Susni Herwanti Pitojo Budiono Copyright (c) 2019 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-12-20 2019-12-20 25 3 164 172 10.7226/jtfm.25.3.164 The Physiochemical Condition of Mangrove Ecosystems in The Coastal District of Sulamo, Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/27437 <p><em>Various rehabilitation and restoration of mangrove forests have been done, but there have not been any significant results. The main reason for the various failures in this activity is that the effort is not based on scientific data such as the suitability of the physicochemical conditions of mangrove habitats along the beach coast of Sulamo District. The purpose of this research is to analyze the condition of salinity, the thickness of mud, and the beach slope of the selected mangrove locations Oeteta, Pariti, Beringin, and Pitai beaches. The salinity conditions show variations, ranging from 19 ppm to 42.33 ppm. The thickness of the mud shows the highest value at 79.11 cm and the slope of mangrove coastal 1–4%. This research shows that the condition of the mangrove ecosystem in the coastal district of Sulamo is still suitable for mangrove growth. This research provides a basic overview of mangrove ecosystem conditions located on the beach coast of the Sulamo district as the basis for planning rehabilitation programs and mangrove restorations in the research area.</em></p> Erny Poedjirahajoe Jeriels Matatula Copyright (c) 2019 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-12-20 2019-12-20 25 3 173 184 10.7226/jtfm.25.3.173 The Role of Tourism in Development: A Dilemma Between Economic Growth and Mangrove Forest Degradation (A Case Study of Regencies/Cities in North Maluku Province) https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/27943 <em>The establishment of the Morotai Island Regency as one of the 10 National Tourism Strategic Areas and Special Economic Zones is a central government strategy to accelerate the development of regencies/cities in North Maluku Province, which are still classified as underdeveloped regions in Eastern Indonesia. This study aims to analyze the influence of tourist arrival rate, price, human development index, and tourism promotion policy on economic growth by using regression of panel data of fixed-effect model (FEM) based on the feasible generalized least square (FGLS) VI method in eight regencies/cities in North Maluku Province during the period of 2012–2017. This finding shows that tourism development was closely related to economic growth, both in the short and long term. However, the development of tourism facilities and other supporting tourism facilities on the coast by coastal landfill had sacrificed the growth of coastal mangrove forests. Therefore, the local government is encouraged to issue regional regulations on the implementation of sustainable tourism businesses and educate the local community and visitors to play a role in protecting the environment of tourist destinations sustainable.</em><p> </p> Elia Radianto Titi Susilowati Prabawa Wilson M.

The mountain has become the center of tourist destinations in West Nusa Tenggara Province, with hiking as the most popular activity carried out by visitors. This study aimed to identify physical and biological hazard potentials and activities that may put visitors at risk to prepare hazard management recommendations. We carried out an interview and field observation for the study in April 2018. We used the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) risk assessment as a reference in biological and physical hazard analysis, and the National Patient Safety Agency for human activities. We also used ArcGIS 10.1 software to develop a map of hazard potentials. Cliff (physical hazard), tree roots (biological hazard), and running (activity) were hazards with the highest risks. All four management options offered by the UNEP, i.e., reducing risk, accepting the tolerable risk, avoiding risk, and transferring risk, were applicable in this area. We proposed that the management considering to increase local community and visitors' knowledge of hazards as a preventive measure while continuing to provide repressive measures.</em></p> E. K. S.
