Abstract: "Musi Hutan Persada (MHP) company is focused on the issue of Acacia mangium plantation to supply raw material for TEL pulp and paper industry. Total area of plantation is about 190,000 ha. The company was created two models of collaboration such as MHBM (community collaboration forest management) and MHR (forest management by people). CIFOR created a collaborative project in the Southeast Asia Country so called the LPF (Levelling Playing Field), which one is implemented in MHP. The objectives of LPF are to create a new model of fairness collaboration among community and company, raising awareness for both parties, and to support working group forum to get better collective action, timber production stability, and increase people income. "There are some methods are used in the intervention program of LPF project in MHP company, such as basic survey on livelihood, observation and deep interview on the issue of culture, local politics, and land tenure conflict, and established working group forum for all stakeholders involved. "The result of the intervention program indicated that: first, most of community income from rubber latex; second, the community feel happy with the MHBM and MHR programs because this program gives the income for local people during planting activity and final harvesting of timber; third, people claimed their 'adat' land is occupied by MHP, and it should be cleared tenure right for second rotation of timber plantation; and fourth, the community needs to increase benefits sharing from MHBM model; and fifth, established communication forum on MHBM and MHR to communicate all problems exist and looking for problem solving among stakeholders."
