  • Social Mix Policies in the French Eco-Districts: Discourses, Policies and
           Social Impacts

    • Abstract: In the 1960s, France built large high-rise developments to house poor and immigrant populations. This policy led to the rise of crime and violent unrest in those developments. Responding to that failure, France has tried, especially since the eighties, to promote a social mix policy in its new housing developments. In the first decade of the twenty first century, France elaborated an eco-district (eco-quartier) program whose guidelines emphasize the goals of this social mix policy together with affordability in public social housing. In light of these developments, this paper focuses on the socio-economic aspects of French eco-districts, especially with respect to low-income populations. The eco-quartier housing distribution has shown that social mix goals are barely reached. In affluent cities, where property prices are high (such as Paris, its middle-class suburbs and some large cities), the municipalities build eco-quartiers in substandard neighborhoods, to attract middle class families. In average cities, some municipalities have implemented more social housing than planned, to provide developers with access to State subsidies and loans – but can still privilege the middle-class in the allocation of the resulting housing. In the poorest French towns, eco-quartiers can improve living conditions for local residents but do not effectively promote social mixing.

  • Growth Analysis of Rhizophora Mucronata Mangrove in Ngurah Rai Forest Park
           (Sanur) Bali Province, Indonesia

    • Abstract: Mangrove forests were a typical type of tropical and subtropical forest, growing along beaches or river mouths that were affected by tides. Mangroves were often found in coastal areas that were protected from the onslaught of waves and sloping areas. Mangrove forest ecosystems had the function of absorbing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and storing carbon in the form of biomass. This research was conducted in September 2017. This study aimed to determine the growth, carbon stocks and biomass in mangrove forests in the area of Taman Hutan Raya Ngurah Rai (Sanur) Denpasar. Making research plots used the transect method with a size of 20 meters x 50 meters as many as 3 plots along the coast. From the measurement results, the total value of the base area in plot A was 2.37 m2 / tree, branch-free volume was 16.57 m3 / tree, biomass was 13,591 tons / plot, carbon stock was 6,795 tons / plot, the average increment was 0, 29 cm / year / tree. While the results of the measurement of the total value of the base area in plot B was 13.20 m2 / tree, branch-free volume of 14.87 m3 / tree, biomass of 8,420 tons / plot, carbon stock of 4,210 tons / plot, average increment amounting to 0.39 cm / year / tree. Furthermore, the total value of the base area in plot C was 12.96 m2 / tree, branch-free volume was 14.83 m3 / tree, biomass was 8,265 tons / plot, carbon stock was 4,132 tons / plot, the average increment was 0, 40 cm / year / tree. The salinity value of plot A = 0.10% with a pH of 6.68, plot B = 0.09% with a pH of 6.78 and plot C = 0.08% with a pH of 6.78. Based on the calculation results, it could be concluded that the total biomass value of plot A = 13,592 tons / plot, plot B = 14,866 tons / plot and plot C = 8,265 on / plot and then carbon stock plot A = 6,796 tons / plot, plot B = 8,420 tons / plot and plot C = 4.133 tons / plot. The average increment per tree obtained values for plot A = 0.29 cm / tree / year, plot B = 0.39 cm / tree / year and plot C = 0.40 cm / tree / year.

  • Impact of Knowledge, Tendency and Perceived Threats of Climate Change on
           Adaptation Strategies: The Case of Tehran Architects

    • Abstract: The consequences of climate change are observed in several ways in human settlements, one of which is the threat it poses to the physical elements and infrastructures of cities. To mitigate it, cities apply adaptation strategies. These strategies have proper effectiveness and are adapted according to local characteristics. This study applied the cross-sectional survey method and Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) to assess the possible relations between variables. The study population was the architects of Tehran metropolis with a sample size of 85. The study instrument was a researcher-developed questionnaire consisting of four sections. Five hypotheses were assessed for relations of knowledge, tendency, perceived threats, and the adaptation strategies, all of which were proved by the study results. The results of the study showed that knowledge on the climate change significantly affects the perceived threats, tendency and the adaptation strategies. The adaptation strategies were also dependent on tendency and the perceived threats. The findings of this study can be helpful for planners and decision makers and the Architecture Society of Tehran to address the problem of climate change more adequately.

  • Analysis of the Parties Role on Stabilizing the Lore Lindu National Park
           Buffer Area (Case Study in Lembah Bada Villages, Lore Barat District, Poso
           Regency, Central Sulawesi)

    • Abstract: The stability of protected areas was influenced by the existence of areas outside it (Meijaard et al., 2006). The more development of the area outside the conservation area, it was necessary to arrange the function of the area to increase the value and opportunities for the use of the area to support development (Kelso et al., 2010). The buffer zone had a very important function, namely to reduce population pressure into conservation areas and nature reserves, provide community economic activities and was an area that allows for sustainable interaction of benefits for the community with conservation areas (Ardhian, 2011). The existence of conservation areas, buffer zones and community economics had a reciprocal relationship that could be beneficial if managed properly (Robinson et al., 2013; and Golar, 2014). This conservation area was increasingly isolated due to exploitative and destructive human activities such as land conversion, encroachment and the resulting increase in human population (Indrawan, 2007; Livawanty et al., 2012; and Golar et al., 2014). A conservation strategy that integrates the uniqueness of resources and the people who live and activities around and within the national park still needs to be explored (Mallombasang, 2012). Abdullah et al. (2013) states that the application of collaboration mechanisms must be followed by safeguards, as a safeguard for its success. One of them was the consolidation of social contracts towards strengthening the buffer zone. The research purposes was to find out the effectiveness of collaboration models that had been applied in overcoming conflicts and find out management strategies through a partnership pattern (process towards social contracts) in an effort to implement collaborative management. This research was conducted in the Lore Lindu National Park area which included 6 buffer villages as samples. The location was determined by consideration as a buffer zone where the community was part of the partnership process. Data analysis was adjusted to the research objectives of qualitative descriptive (in cluster model), fishbone and SWOT analysis. The conclusion was interaction and dependence on various supply of forest resource products that had been going on for generations, and in the end giving birth to positive local wisdom was a major factor in maintaining forest cover in Cluster 1 of Lore Lindu Valley Bada National Park. The experience and learning of collaborative management activities that had been or had been carried out in TNLL were still conventional in nature where community involvement was still mobilized and dominated by BBTNLL management. The non-optimal management of colabotaif in TNLL was dominated by internal factors compared to internal and external factors such as limited resources and access to information, the involvement of stakeholders at the local level which was not yet maximal, the absence or finalization of boundary management, traditional attitudes towards life, and experience bad past in resolving tenure and social conflicts. Global, national and local strategic issues demonstrate the potential for developing collaborative and participatory TNLL management through prospective and competitive Community-based Conservation Partnerships (KKM) in the future. Four important components as a policy strategy that must be carried out based on SWOT in the development of KKM in TNLL were strengthening the legality status of the area through mapping boundaries and preparing participatory zoning, empowering parties, especially local institutions and resources, changing paradigms in resolving tenurial and social conflicts, and developing diversity alternative livelihood sources. Collaborative Management that begins with a social contract in the Community-based Conservation Partnership (KKM) policy, besides having a huge opportunity in overcoming tenurial and social conflicts in the LLNP, also provided certainty and guarantees the sustainability of more equitable and participatory management.

  • Community Participation in the Community Nursery Program in Manokwari
           Regency, West Papua Province

    • Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine and analyze the degree of community participation in the Community Nursery (Kebun Bibit Rakyat-KBR) program in Wasai Village and Arfai I Village, the district of South Manokwari, in the Manokwari Regency. Also this study aims to identify the factors that influence the level of community participation, and then formulates several management efforts to improve community participation in the program. The result found that communities that get involved in the KBR program are community groups of various types of professions, ethnicities and genders. The level of community participation in the KBR program is included in the high category for the whole set of activities in the KBR. However, for activities related to technical knowledge on planting and administration, community participation was still low. The significant factor affects the successful implementation of the KBR program was the direct involvement of community leaders. The support and involvement of community leaders played an important role in motivating the community to actively age in the KBR program. In addition, financial benefits of the program for individuals and village communities became the other determining factor that motivated the community to actively join in the KBR program. The alternative formulation offered in the early preparation of KBR activities was the program socialization. The early information has to be designed more effectively, so that the community is able to understand the procedures for implementing the KBR program, especially activities related to technical knowledge. Moreover, the involvement of other community leaders was a concern for the implementation of the KBR program since they were considered as the role models of social communities. Finally, collaborative programs with multi-stakeholders would be a solution to provide multiple benefits for the community as part of regional and national development goals.
