The sustainability of rice farming is essential in achieving rice production targets and realizing the food security of the Indonesian people. This study aimed to determine the strategic variables that defined the sustainability of rice farming in the downstream of Sekampung watershed, Lampung Province. This research was conducted in Central Lampung and East Lampung regencies from October until November 2019. This research used a prospective structural approach. The analysis method was Matrix of Crossed Impact Multiplications Applied to a Classification (MICMAC) to identify the most influential variables and their relationship with the sustainability of rice farming in the downstream of Sekampung watershed. The results of the analysis that embody the typology of strategic variables based on the strength of influence determined four classifications: 1). Influence variables (key drivers) consisted of erosion, water availability and soil fertility; 2). Key relay variables included farm cost, cropping index, productivity and land-use change; 3). Depending variable (output variable) consisted of income and exchange rate of farmers and 4) Excluded variable (autonomous variable) consisted of rice price incentives and farmers’ culture in rice farming. The key variables that determined and had a strong influence on the sustainability of rice farming in the downstream of Sekampung watershed were erosion, water availability and soil fertility. The results of this study indicated important sources of information for policymakers to determine and develop sustainable rice farming. Key words: key variables, rice farming, Sekampung, prospective structural, MICMAC.
