Abstract

Pressure on forest resources causes overexploitation, so that forest resources can’t provide optimal benefits. High demands for timber have created opportunity for the development of community forests in Indonesia. The opportunity has been used relatively well by community forest farmers, such as in Cangkringan Sub-District, Sleman Regency. This study was aimed to learn the economic condition of community forest farmers by calculating income balance, expense, welfare, and perception of community forest farmer family. The data of this study was collected using purposive sampling method, with a total of 60 respondents. Secondary data was collected from related government agencies. The research result showed that most community forests useagroforestry system.Sengon, which is the main community of community forest, serves community savings, which is knownas “tebangbutuh” system. 51% respondents agreed to the perception of the importance of community forest.Comprehensive calculation produced positive value, which is bigger than 100% for total percentage of income on expense. Using Sajogyo’s line of poverty, over ¾ (three fourth) of community forest farmer respondents were above the line of poverty or were able to meet their minimum primary needs.

Abstract

Volcanic eruption is one of the natural factors that affect land cover changes. This study aimed to monitor land cover changes using a remote sensing approach in Cangkringan Sub-district, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, one of the areas most vulnerable to Mount Merapi eruption. Three satellite images, dating from 2001, 2006 and 2011, were used as main data for land cover classification based on a supervised classification approach. The land cover detection analysis was undertaken by overlaying the classification results from those images. The results show that the dominant land cover class is annual crops, covering 40% of the study area, while the remaining 60% consists of forest cover types, dryland farming, paddy fields, settlements, and bare land. The forests were distributed in the north, and the annual crops in the middle of the study area, while the villages and the rice fields were generally located in the south. In the 2001–2011 period, forests were the most increased land cover type, while annual crops decreased the most, as a result of the eruption of Mount Merapi in 2010. Such data and information are important for the local government or related institutions to formulate Detailed Spatial Plans (RDTR) in the Disaster-Prone Areas (KRB).
