This study aims to determine the form of institutional governance of smallholder agriculture in peat areas and determine the truth of the influence of community economic management and development indicators on Society 5.0, which results from empirical studies in the field. The results of the study describe the first finding that existing forms of institutional governance are going well but are still passive. This is caused by constraints on knowledge of horticultural plant management in peat areas, nutrient utilization processes, sustainable farming group management techniques in terms of government regulations, and empowerment of surrounding companies through CSR. Furthermore, it was found that management variables and community economic development had a positive influence on Society 5.0. From this study, it formulated recommendations from the synergy between economic development and management of peat areas to socio-economic and environmental impacts that must be considered by interested stakeholders. Maximizing function technology in making it easy to manage horticulture plants in peat areas as a form of Society 5.0 to minimize behind.

Ghimbo Pomuan Indigenous Forest is one of the customary forests in the Riau Province. The existence of Ghimbo Pomuan Indigenous Forest is crucial for the surrounding communities as this forest serves as a watershed area for clean water sources and maintains ecological balance. One of its significant roles is its ability to absorb CO2 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Ghimbo Pomuan Indigenous Forest has a standing biomass of 16,262.896 Mg and a carbon stock of 8,130.976 Mg. The economic value of carbon in the Ghimbo Pomuan Indigenous Forest, located in Kampa Village, Kampar Subdistrict, Kampar Regency, Riau Province, amounts to IDR 2,593,778,502 (free market) and IDR 6,778,407,818.56 (Clean Development Mechanism).

Model Edukasi Masyarakat dalam Upaya Pencegahan Kebakaran Lahan Gambut di Kecamatan Pujud Kabupaten Rokan Hilir

Sri Astuti, Almasdi Syahza, Suarman

Factors that cause peatland fires are caused by 2 factors, namely intentional factors and accidental factors. For intentional factors caused by the farming system with the traditional culture of the local population, the cost of burning peat land is cheaper, faster, and more practical, land ownership conflicts, and increased demand for palm oil. Accidental factors are caused by throwing cigarette butts carelessly, making bonfires, and burning debris, and garbage so that it spreads to peatlands. The public education model in efforts to prevent peatland fires is divided into 2 approaches. First, an educational model with an individual approach through direct and indirect communication, technical guidance, and face-to-face services to the public. Second, an educational model with a mass approach through socialization and campaigns, discussion rooms, and social media containing educational content on peatland fire prevention, peatland restoration actions, and a formal education curriculum with local content on peatland fire disaster mitigation.

The results showed the magnitude of the multiplier effect index impacts the welfare index of rural communities. Oil palm farmers in rural areas have a more stable economy, and their consumption style follows the urban community. In an effort to accelerate the economy in rural areas, especially in oil palm-producing areas in Indonesia, government policies related to pricing at the farm level are urgently needed to have an impact on increasing the income of small-scale farmers in rural areas.
