Abstract

Coal mining and timber companies are strategic industries for Indonesia, so exploration is very massive and extends to remote villages, including in the area of Kecamatan Lahei Barat, Kabupaten Barito Utara, Kalimantan Tengah. The Lahei Barat community, which previously inhabited the area and used nature as an economic foundation, especially in searching for rubber latex and processing river fish, is being threatened due to two activities in the forest and mining sectors. There are three aims of this research, namely, first, identifying the main problem of community vulnerability in the Lahei Barat region due to mining and timber company expansion, second, identifying conflicts that arise due to the movement of vulnerability in the community, and third, identifying factors that trigger conflict.
