This research is normative research using a statute approach and a conceptual approach. In addition, it employed primary legal sources and secondary legal sources collected through literature research. The data was analyzed using content analysis. Based on the results of the study, it was found that in Government Regulation No. 19 of 2021 concerning the Implementation of Land Procurement for Development for the Public Interest as a derivative of the UUCK to facilitate the conversion of agricultural land through expanding the scope of public interest activities from 18 to 24 activities.
