Abstract

This paper elaborates on aspects associated with the phenomenon of customary forests managed by indigenous communities. There are three aspects closely related to the phenomenon of customary forests: the social aspect (indigenous community), the territorial aspect (indigenous territory) and the legal aspect (customary law). Through a sectoral approach, these three aspects are regulated by different sectoral regimes. A cross-sectoral arrangement is often problematic in Indonesia because of the existence of government ego-sectors63 which hamper communication and coordination among those sectors. Conservation is a forest function that acts in addition to protection and production functions. Customary forests are constitutionally eligible to participate in natural/forest resource management. However, in the field sociocultural changes convert community members from a simple communal life toward more individualistic and materialistic lifestyles, which in turn lead to a gluttonous attitude to forest resource exploitation. This change in community perspective is the root of the threat to forest conservation and protection functions.
