Freudenberger (1994) gave three reasons why it is vitally important to study tenure in natural-resources management programmes: first, it affects who has access to resources; second, it affects whether people are willing to participate in project activities; and third, it affects the distribution of a programme’s benefits. There is a need to examine aspects of land tenure that affect long-term management of forest land, range land and farmland, as well as tree resources and sources of other minor forest products (Otsuka and Place, 2001). Based on these three reasons, it can be seen that an understanding of tenure is important in its relevance to a community’s sustainable livelihood. This condition also applies to communities living at the edge of the forest. Those communities that use their land for shifting cultivation must understand local land-tenure policies because of their long-term effect and their relationship to security in managing the land (Wulandari and Cahyaningsih, 2010). Also, as stated by Herrera and Da Passano (2006) and Colchester (2007), the legal aspects of regulating access to specific areas (tenure rights systems) are important to securing a broad spectrum of community rights. An example of the importance of understanding tenure exists in Lampung province, where shifting cultivators are allowed access only to protected or conservation forests.
