Abstract

This research was conducted in 2017 at four forest-dependent villages of Kalimantan, Indonesia, which were traditionally migrated outside village looking for a job. This study aims to determine the impact of migration on the livelihood and agricultural land of forest-dependent farmers. The result showed that cash and remittance from out-migrants do not negatively affect forests and land. During 2000-2016, cash and remittance were decreased. Still, cash made-home tends to increase. The educated in-migrant people had a positive impact on education sharing. No negative impact on forests and land, out-migration did not reduce agricultural production, and the prospect of out-migration to seek a good job out-side Indonesia showed the respondents no longer interested because of Indonesia’s availability of opportunities the decentralization policy since 2000.
