Abstract

The community forests at Java Island was not initially designed scientifically. The community traditionally treated the forest as trees grown surrounding the community land to meet the need of timber both as fuel wood and construction wood for their own subsistence living. However, for more than the last two decades the community forest at Java has become increase. The shift from traditional community forest into forestry driven by capitalistic economy market is urgent to be studied in systemic way. The research was conducted in Semoyo Village, Patuk Sub-District, Gunungkidul Regency. A wide range of variations of community forest setting and specific situation of household were found almost unexpectedly. Community forest developed dynamically in coupled systems with the corresponding livelihood system and then to bring the lessons learned onto other areas. When these components of dynamics are well understood, significant roles of community forests in changing the quality of life as well as the shift of community culture can be used as appropriate considerations for policy development. This research find that there are four driver components in coupling operation: motivation, force situation, economic added value of wood and interest of young generation employment which can make community forest and livelihood system dnamically couple.
