Therefore, this study maps the livelihood sustainability of PES farmers and non-PES farmers in the Cidanau Watershed using capital indexes based on the five livelihood capital assets of the DFID’s sustainable livelihood framework. The research used a quantitative method to formulate the livelihood capital indexes </em>(<em>LCI</em>)<em> as approximates to the subjects’ livelihood sustainability based on their livelihood information and draws implications from the results thereof. A total of 168 agroforestry farmers both from PES and non-PES groups were interviewed across 12 villages in the upstream area. The results show that both PES and non-PES groups share the same pattern of capital assets sustainability with the PES group having a slightly higher human capital asset. The overall LCI calculated for the PES and non-PES groups are 0.445 and 0.48, respectively. The livelihood of both groups is deemed as not yet sustainable. The farmers would have to develop their financial and human assets to attain more sustainable livelihoods and prepare themselves for adopting new types of PES in the future.</em></p> Muhammad Diheim Biru, Mahawan Karuniasa, Kosuke Mizuno Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/46910 Mon, 27 Nov 2023 11:19:08 +0700 Stakeholder Salience in a Multistakeholder Initiative of the National Forestry Council of Indonesia https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/47118 <p><em>This study analyzes the roles and positions of stakeholders in decision-making processes within the National Forestry Council </em>(<em>Dewan Kehutanan Nasional, DKN</em>)<em>, a forest-related multistakeholder platform in Indonesia. It considers stakeholders’ power, legitimacy, and urgency. The research employed a qualitative case study, centered around in-depth interviews with 27 key informants with diverse backgrounds involved in the DKN. The study found that despite being designed to facilitate democratic and inclusive decision-making, the engagement of stakeholders in the DKN is heavily dominated by powerful government actors. Several stakeholder groups, such as NGOs and academics, may actively participate in decision-making processes, but they do not meaningfully influence and capacity to determine the organizational policy directions. </em><em>This is related to an imbalance in the distribution of power among stakeholders in DKN. Even though this organization promotes the principle of inclusivity, the reality is that the presence and influence of the government are still the dominant factors in determining policy directions. This study confirms the importance of the stakeholder salience analysis approach in the context of multistakeholder initiative organizations such as the DKN, which allows recognition of power dynamics and domination among stakeholders within the DKN so that decisions made truly reflect the common interests of all parties involved.</em></p> Tatag Muttaqin, Emma Soraya, Budi Dharmawan, Ahmad Maryudi Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/47118 Wed, 06 Dec 2023 15:44:26 +0700 Food Crop Land Allocation: Integrating Land Suitability Analysis and Spatial Forestry, Study Case Katingan, Indonesia https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/46404 <p><em>The Indonesian government strives to expand agricultural lands, primarily beyond Java, through food estate program</em><em>s</em><em>.

Private forest harvesting has an important and strategic role in improving the welfare of the Indonesian people, especially in rural areas. Therefore, this research presents a review of harvesting systems used in private forests in Indonesia. This research uses literature searching and a statistical database. The basic criteria for selecting a harvesting system of private forest are a timber sales system, low equipment capital costs, and labor-intensive as well as adaptivity to local wisdom. Harvesting of private forests is mainly carried out by small-scale contractors Forest harvesting systems are partly mechanized and non-mechanized. Chainsaw was the cutting tool used for felling, debranching, and bucking. The most commonly used forest harvesting systems are manual and those involving modified motorbikes. Another less common system is conducted with animals, winches, and simple skyline systems. Loggers in private forests are self-taught workers and have not received special training in harvesting techniques, log bucking and wood extraction, and chainsaw maintenance. Improvement of wood extraction techniques is urgently needed, especially in aspects of the operating system, occupational health, and safety in forest harvesting with modified motorbikes, winches, and simple skyline systems.&nbsp;&nbsp;</em></p> Ahmad Budiaman, Hardjanto Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/46079 Wed, 06 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Application of Conventional and Improved Techniques in Felling and Skidding to Residual Stand Damages https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/47622 <p><em>Felling and skidding are essential in the timber extraction process. But on the other hand, residual stand damage can’t be avoided. This study aimed to analyze the impact of conventional and improved felling and skidding techniques on residual stands in natural forests. Three observation plots were developed to identify the types, numbers, and criteria of residual stand damage due to both techniques. The criteria were categorized as a) minor damage </em>(<em>&lt;25%</em>)<em>, b) moderate damage </em>(<em>25–50%</em>)<em>, and c) major damage </em>(<em>&gt;50%</em>)<em>. It showed that the conventional felling and skidding technique caused damages of 14.92% dominated by tree crown damage and 16.70% dominated by stem wounds, respectively. The residual stand damage due to conventional felling and skidding technique was 31.62% categorized as medium damage. Meanwhile, improved felling and skidding techniques caused damage of 9.89% dominated by broken trees, and 10.27% dominated by stem wounds, respectively. The residual stand damage due to improved felling and skidding technique was 20.16% categorized as minor damage. The improvement techniques can minimize residual stand damage by 36.24%.</em> <em>Therefore, a good understanding of forest concessionaires regarding RIL principles is necessary for achieving sustainable timber harvesting</em></p> Yuniawati, Sarah Andini, Mutia Herni Ningrum Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/47622 Wed, 06 Dec 2023 14:24:07 +0700 The Influence of Land Management on Soil Mite (Acari: Oribatida, Prostigmata, and Mesostigmata) Communities as Bioindicators for Environmental Conditions https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/49169 <p><em>As a soil-living organism, soil mite presence is important for ensuring the sustainable land.

To understand the TEK of Indonesian indigenous people and its influencing factors, we evaluated the Tengger people’s knowledge and conservation awareness regarding culturally important plants (Javanese edelweiss). We interviewed 641 people from seven Tengger villages located adjacent to Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park (BTS), Indonesia. We developed 31 models to examine factors affecting edelweiss knowledge and calculated the Akaike information criterion values to select the best model. Sex, education, and residency duration were significant predictors of edelweiss knowledge. Men, individuals with higher levels of education, and those who had lived in the area for a longer period of time had higher levels of edelweiss knowledge. Our findings confirm that communication within the community and external information sources, such as media and formal education, are involved in knowledge transmission related to edelweiss. Educational activities for local people can be used to disseminate TEK through formal education in schools and informal education programs conducted by the national park managers.</em></p> Denni Susanto, Shinya Numata Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/49331 Wed, 06 Dec 2023 15:47:00 +0700 Front-matter https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/52127 <p><a title="frontmatter" href="https://doi.org/10.7226/jtfm.29.3.fm" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://doi.org/10.7226/jtfm.29.3.fm</a></p> Admin JMHT Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/52127 Fri, 08 Dec 2023 15:05:51 +0700 Back-matter https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/52143 <p><a title="backmatter" href="https://doi.org/10.7226/jtfm.29.3.bm" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://doi.org/10.7226/jtfm.29.3.bm</a></p> Admin JMHT Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/article/view/52143 Fri, 08 Dec 2023 14:59:19 +0700
