Abstract

This study is objected to determine the options for land conservation based on degraded land in upland of Luas watershed, Bengkulu, Indonesia. This work was conducted on the upland from November 2015 to February 2016. The location was geographically lying on 103020’47” - 103058’50” Latitude., and on 04021’10” - 04037’12” longitude, in Kaur District, Bengkulu Province. The total area is 55,045.23 ha where the forest covers 52,432.95 ha or 95% of the upland of Luas watershed. The spatial analysis for land degraded level was based on overlaying from attributes of some parameters such as; land cover, slope, erosion hazardous level, land productivity and management. The analysis is conducted by converting analytical geographical coordinates into Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM). The upland of the watershed is currently under environmentally pressures which around 24% in poor conditions and 23% of the area are degraded. The Limited Timber Forest areas of Air Kinal, Kaur Selatan, and the protected forest area of Bukit Raja Mendara can potentially be rehabilitated by applying concepts of social forestry with introducing agro-forestry cultivation models. All areas of agriculture cultivation in this study can be effective using land conservation tillage and management which concerning all environmental values for the sustainable productivities.
