Restorasi ekologi lahan gambut bermuara pada kerusakan ekosistem lahan gambut yang disebabkan oleh aktivitas manusia baik disengaja maupun tidak. Akibat dari kerusakan tersebut menimbulkan berbagai macam masalah seperti kebakaran lahan. Di Desa Tanjung Leban merupakan salah satu desa dengan tingkat kebakaran cukup tinggi terutama pada tahun 2012, 2013, dan 2015. Banyak lahan bekas terbakar dibiarkan menjadi lahan tidur yang pada akhirnya menjadi areal yang rawan kebakaran karena kurangnya kontrol terhadap lahan tersebut.

Almasdi Syahza, Djaimi Bakce, Mitri Irianti, Brilliant Asmit, Besri Nasrul

Riau is an Indonesian province known for its large plantations. The plantation business makes the most significant contribution to the fiscal revenues of the province. This paper aims to innovate the rural economy through the sustainable development of superior commodities in the plantation sub-sector of agriculture. Specifically, multi-criteria analysis (MCA) was performed to determine the superior commodities in each locality. The results show that the superior commodities include palm oil, rubber, coconut, cocoa, coffee, and sago. The development of these commodities could boost farmers’ income with the added value of plantation products. On this basis, the fair use of land for all categories was highlighted from social, economic, and environmental perspectives, and recognized as essential to the development of sustainable plantations, which are integral to the rural economy and land sustainability. The proposed development strategy for superior commodities in plantations is in line with the sustainable development goals (SDGs) in Riau Province, Indonesia.

Almasdi Syahza, Enni Savitri, Brilliant Asmit, and Geovani Meiwanda

A region’s economic growth depends on the development policies based on the wealth determined from the potential of human, institutional and local resources. Furthermore, tThe development needs to link primary sectors with future processing to increase agricultural products’ added value and marketing competitiveness. This study develops an innovative marketing model in agricultural products for small-scale farmers through village-owned enterprises (BUMDes) and micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) empowerment in coastal areas. One way of realizing this program is by building agribusiness and agro-industry partnerships that are well-planned and associated with other economic sectors’ development. The partnership involves community economic institutions, including BUMDes, credit institutions, farmer entrepreneurs, as well as Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises. BUMDes is a rural-based business with a legal entity managed by the village government to create added value for the community’s agricultural products. Together with MSMEs, these businesses need to support the agribusiness subsystem’s development, including trading in agricultural production facilities and business activities. Furthermore, they need to promote agricultural production, support services, a source of market information for rural communities, the main actors of appropriate technology for agricultural products.
