Despite its economic significance, the industry has been kept out of the formal economies due to a lack of supportive data on the structure and characteristics of the industry. This study investigates the structure of the supply chain and examines the chain actors' roles and functions to understand the issues within the supply chain activities. Data were collected through key informants' interviews and observations. </em><em>The study found that fuelwood business activities were conducted formally by licensed actors and informally by non-licensed actors. </em><em>Benefits received and issues experienced by actors were related to the formality of the business. Heavy reliance on natural forests for fuelwood production among chain actors can add pressure on the forest resources and ecosystem. Therefore, significant intervention is needed for the industry which includes policy and programs related to fuelwood plantation and management, government support, licensing education, and collaborations among all stakeholders to improve supply chain activities.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> 2022-11-16T14:40:50+07:00 Copyright (c) Modelling for Estimation Carbon Stocks in Land Cover Using A System Dynamic Approach (Case Study: Prabumulih City, South Sumatera, Indonesia) 2022-12-01T09:35:20+07:00 Yuniar Pratiwi Amin Rejo Armina Fariani Muhammad Faizal <p><em>Human activities, which have interfered with the ecological system, have led to global warming. This has led to the release of carbon stocks into the atmosphere, thereby reducing the function of carbon sinks in places with vegetated land. With increased human activities, vegetated land will soon become non-vegetated. This is because the increased human activities have led to the absorption of higher amounts of carbon in the atmosphere than the required level. Therefore, this study aimed to estimate land cover on carbon stocks in Prabumulih City, South Sumatera Province, Indonesia. The study employed a random field survey using a dynamic system, with the results showing that land cover consisted of oil palm plantations, mixed plantations, grass, swamp shrubs, and rivers. However, the area was dominated by rubber plantations, and as a result, the carbon stocks continued to decline. For instance, in 2008, the level of carbon stock was 2,438.72 Gg and fell to 2,190.85 Gg in 2020, indicating a 4.8% decrease. It is projected that by 2030, the carbon stock in land cover will be 1,988.07 Gg. </em></p> 2022-11-16T15:40:01+07:00 Copyright (c) Clustering Residents' Intention and Behavior Toward Forest Rehabilitation Initiative: a Case Study in The Upstream of Central Java, Indonesia 2022-12-01T09:35:19+07:00 Arum Puspaningtyas Manto Prasetyo Nugroho <p><em>The success</em><em> of </em><em>forest rehabilitation initiatives </em><em>depends on</em><em> community engagement; thus, it is </em><em>important</em><em> to understand community opinions toward forest rehabilitation initiatives.

We scrutinized residents' opinions of the forest rehabilitation initiative using the extended Theory of Planned Behavior framework variables, i.e., behavior </em>(<em>B</em>)<em>, behavioral intention </em>(<em>BI</em>)<em>, attitude toward behavior </em>(<em>ATB</em>)<em>, perceived behavioral control </em>(<em>PBC</em>)<em>, subjective norm </em>(<em>SN</em>)<em>, moral norm </em>(<em>MN</em>)<em>, perceived risk </em>(<em>PR</em>)<em>, and self-identity </em>(<em>SI</em>)<em>. Those factors were used to cluster residents into </em><em>various</em><em> groups using the k-means clustering method. 307 completed questionnaires were obtained. We found that residents were clustered into two distinctive groups: active supporters </em>(<em>AS</em>)<em> and passive supporters </em>(<em>PS</em>)<em>. PS was dominant in the community </em>(<em>61.9%</em>)<em>. They were characterized by less agreement in perceiving the adverse impacts of forest degradation</em><em>, </em><em>less intent and engagement&nbsp; in forest rehabilitation programs</em><em>. In contrast, </em><em>AS was more receptive to forest rehabilitation initiatives. These results confirm that residents are heterogeneous in opinions and interest in forest rehabilitation initiatives. Therefore, forest managers should design effective policies and alternative approaches to ensure the success of forest rehabilitation programs based on those distinctive groups.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> 2022-11-16T15:40:49+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika Independent Smallholders' Perceptions towards MSPO Certification in Sabah, Malaysia 2023-01-04T14:59:36+07:00 Mohd Hafizuddin-Syah Bangun Abdullah Shahida Shahimi Amran Arifin <p><em>In a wake of concern towards sustainable palm oil products, the Malaysian government had continuously formulated various guidelines for palm oil industries in fulfilling the international sustainability requirement. In 2013, Malaysia has launched Malaysian sustainable palm oil </em>(<em>MSPO</em>)<em>, which eventually become mandatory requirement in January 2020, including the independent smallholders. However, the numbers of independent smallholders that acquired MSPO was relatively low, stood at 30.66%. Therefore, this study aims to analyse the perceptions of independent smallholders towards MSPO in Malaysia. A structured questionnaire was used for data collection instrument that been distributed among 350 independent smallholders, with a response rate of 74.5%. Results from descriptive analysis showed that independent smallholders have a good perception towards MSPO certification. Furthermore, multiple regression analysis revealed that all three factors were significant to influence the perceptions, where the risk perception became the most important contributor. This study enhances the awareness of sustainability practices among independent smallholders and contributes to the implementation of MSPO certification. Since risk perception has emerged as the primary contributor, regulators or governing bodies must seriously consider risk mitigation concerning independent smallholders about risk exposure such as continuous monitoring to comply environment impact assessment requirement, improve the availability and accessibility of information and aggressive awareness campaign on MSPO.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> 2022-11-16T15:42:08+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika How do the Customary Forest and Protected Forest Management Principles affect Ambon City Protected Forest Management between the Government and Indigenous Peoples? (Case in the Mount Sirimau Protection Forest Group, Ambon City, Maluku Province) 2023-01-04T15:07:49+07:00 Evelin Parera Ris Hadi Purwanto Dwiko Budi Permadi Sumardi <p><em>Protection forests are state forests that are authorized by the government to be managed, but on the other hand, indigenous peoples already exist and manage forests that are claimed as customary forest. How is the management of protection forests between the government and indigenous peoples? The purpose of this study is to examine the management of protection forests between the government and indigenous peoples and the collaboration in the management of protection forests between the two. The results showed that the management of protection forests by the government was not optimal at the site level based on the principles of protection forest management that had only been done with boundaries: only area boundaries, not blocks and plots, forest protection such as area patrols, installation of prohibition boards and appeals) and land rehabilitation (planting with woody plant species and multi-purpose trees. Protected forest management by indigenous peoples has touched the site level on several aspects of protected forest management principles. Protected management activities by indigenous peoples following the principles of protected forest management are the cultivation of fruit plants, land use with dusung/traditional agroforestry cropping patterns, forest protection is prohibited from cutting trees at water sources, along riverbanks, replanting if cutting fruit trees that are not productive, utilizing non-timber forest products.</em> <em>The government as the planner but implementing it in the field is the indigenous people who are accompanied by the government and joint monitoring and evaluation. Protected forest management based on the principle of protected forest management is more optimally carried out in a collaborative and complementary manner between the government and indigenous peoples.</em></p> 2022-11-16T15:42:49+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika The Role of Natural Capital in Surviving Periods of Crisis: A Case Study of the Nglanggeran Village Community 2023-01-04T16:06:29+07:00 Lasti Nur Satiani Titi Susilowati Prabawa Aldi Herindra Lasso <p><em>The sustainability of tourism-based livelihoods can be threatened when a crisis occurs.&nbsp;Thus, people’s resilience during crisis is a significant factor for people to maintain livelihoods as it is a contributing mechanism for people to escape from crisis. &nbsp;This research examines how the Nglanggeran community sustains their livelihoods by utilizing their natural resources as a strategy to survive Covid-19 pandemic between 2020 to 2021.&nbsp;This study uses an ethnographic approach. The data collection process was carried out through participant observation and in-depth interviews with 14 former migrant workers and who now live in Nglanggeran village. The focus of the analysis in this study is the strategy of the Nglanggeran community in maintaining their livelihoods by utilizing their land. The analysis process uses thematic analysis. People who own paddy fields are more likely to survive than those who plant trees for timber on their land. What the Nglanggeran community does is important in maintaining their resilience and as a survival strategy for the local community. Tourism activities do not have to displace traditional livelihood activities on local people's land, rather land use can be optimized to support sustainable livelihoods. While they can optimalise land use, this does not increase their quality of life. They have survived but their livelihoods remain vulnerable.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> 2022-11-16T15:43:33+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika Environment Degradation and Rural Livelihood of Mulawarman Community in Indonesia 2023-01-04T15:43:17+07:00 Agus Tianur Pamerdi Giri Wiloso Royke Roberth Siahanenia Yohanes Budi Sulistioadi <p><em>This article aims to describe the livelihoods of communities around the mining area through cases in Mulawarman Village, Tenggarong Seberang District, Kutai Kartanegara Regency, East Kalimantan Province, Indonesia.

H. Simangunsong <p><em>By 2020, there were 33.4 million ha of degraded forests in Indonesia. If it is not rehabilitated, there will be land-use changes that significantly affect its biodiversity and environment. Gap opening and &nbsp;planting is an important silvicultural regeneration method to rehabilitate degraded tropical natural forests.&nbsp; We studied the subject in a 10 ha degraded lowland tropical natural forest in Central Borneo, Indonesia. The study aims to compare the composition and structure of degraded tropical natural forests before and after gap opening and planting. The methods used consist of 1) gap opening and &nbsp;planting with a proportion of the total gap area to the total degraded natural forest area of 40%; 2) vegetation analysis to assess the composition and structure of forest. The results showed that the gap opening and planting activities led to a decrease in the density of seedlings, saplings, poles, and trees, and cause loss of two species at seedling level and one species at sapling level. The analysis results of the stand structure and species composition, index of species diversity, species evenness index, and community similarity index before and after gap opening and planting of the degraded forest in the study area of 10 ha showed that there is no changes of these variables. These results showed that the use of the gap opening and planting method in the rehabilitation of degraded forests is able to maintain the stability of species composition and stand structure, species diversity, species evenness, and forest communities. In conclusion, the study provided significant empirical results on the composition and structure of degraded tropical natural forests before and after gap opening and planting, which would be instrumental for the development of rehabilitation strategies. It is recommended that the rehabilitation of degraded tropical natural forests in Indonesia can be carried out using the gap opening and planting method.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> 2022-11-30T18:59:53+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika Front Matter 2023-01-03T16:03:01+07:00 Admin JMHT <p></p> 2022-11-24T15:25:10+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika Back Matter 2022-12-01T09:35:14+07:00 Admin JMHT <p></p> 2022-11-24T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika
