Wetlands are inundated areas, either permanently or seasonally. Those areas can be managed properly if there is a proper utilization; i.e. deploying wetlands in agriculture, such as farming. This utilization is very cultivating for the people of Indonesia, especially in South Kalimantan, because most of South Kalimantan people have livelihood as rice farmers. This wetland management is one of the multicultural transformations that sustain the character of Indonesian society. More than 75% of the rice farming community farms on wetlands due to their flooding arrangements that are consistent with the growth of rice crops. The purpose of this research is to describe wetland management in agriculture as a multicultural transformation. That is, multicultural transformation is not just about different cultures, but also as a process that helps the development of society to realize better development.
