The use of forest area (UFA) policy is a forest management policy by government to accommodate the needs for mining sector in forest area.
This study aims to analyze the factors that become key drivers and influence the acceptance of UFA program and also build the agent-based model
simulation of UFA policy. The method built in this research is using Structural Equation Modelling and Agent-Based Modelling approach. Based on
the results of confirmatory factor analysis, the factors that play a role in the acceptance of the program is the understanding and participation of
stakeholders related to UFA program and the availability of land allocation to be given license to borrow forest area. In addition, based on the ABM
approach, in order to anticipate the increased deforestation rate in available forest cover, it is necessary to accelerate and increase the rate of
mining reclamation activities by license holders.
