Abstract

Peatland is a typical ecosystem in terms of structure, function and vulnerability. Irresponsible utilization of peatland will lead to the loss of one of precious resources since peatland is non-renewable. As reported, in Central Kalimantan are seen many bongkor (sleeping lands), the degraded peatlands resulted from subsidence, which were then left or abandoned by the managements. Peatlands require different management than other lands. Therefore it is important to research how peatland management strategies, in order to avoid the occurrence of damaged peatlands. The utilization of natural resources should be carried out in optimal and environmentally friendly ways because the optimal utilization will support local economy. The purpose of this study was to analyze the stages of agroforestry management and the economic value on peatlands. The method used in this study was a direct survey in the field. Data collection techniques in this study were by interviews, observation and literature. Purposive sampling was used to select the study location. The results showed that the strategy for peatland conservation was the management leading to sustainability and compliance and having economic value in order to improve the welfare of the community. This strategy refers to Brown Economic (adaptability, product ability and sustainability) and to the stages of the management that minimize the subsidence when peatlands are being managed. With agroforestry system and management on peatland, it is expected that the peatland conservation will improve the social welfare and environmental sustainability.
