Abstract

The registered forest area in Lampung Province has a fairly long history of conflict. Of all the 51 registered forest areas, conflicts often and repeatedly occur, requiring permanent resolution. The government has issued a social forestry policy through Presidential Regulation Number 88 of 2017 concerning Settlement of Land Tenure in Forest Areas. The researcher summarizes two legal problems, namely: (1) What is the typology of conflict in the forest area register in Lampung Province? (2) How is the implementation of the social forestry program as a form of conflict resolution in the registered forest area of Lampung Province? Researchers use legal methods or empirical sociology to answer these problems. The results of this study provide an answer that, first, the implementation of social forestry must pay attention to the characteristics of conflict and forest functions carefully so that the social forestry scheme can actually become a bridge to resolve conflicts that occur in the Lampung register forest area. It must be said that the existing social forestry is not the solution to all kinds of conflicts in Lampung Province. Social Forestry Schemes must consider forest, legal, social, economic, cultural and political functions, and identify protected forests. Second, the recording of forest areas in Lampung Province can only run with two schemes, namely Community Forestry and Forestry Partnership, because other forest functions do not yet exist in Lampung Province.
