Forests and land degradation in the Sekaroh region of East Lombok areas has reached a very severe level. Since the 1990s the government of Indonesia has made various efforts to rehabilitate forests and critical land in this area on a massive scale, but data showed that the success rate was far from expectations. The paper presented in this international conference was the two years participatory study that is very relevant to the massive destruction of forests and land that occurred in the Province of West Nusa Tenggara. The method used in this study was Participatory Rapid Appraisal (PRA) method which involves various stakeholders in the forest and land rehabilitation efforts.The results of the 2 year participatory study were able to encourage a ways to overcome the problems of forests and land degradation in the Village of Sekaroh and Pemongkong through a development paradigm based on both natural resources and human resources by emphasizing community learning and empowerment as development capital. The social capital paradigm developed through real learning is social capital that is based on ‘togetherness’, namely by trying to see the positive roles of social institutions to be played in the learning process in the management of forests and land degradation in Sekaroh and Pemongkong villages. The action learning process that has been carried out has succeeded in encouraging collaboration among institutions such as religious institution, customary institution, local government and the Working Group on Forest and Land Degradation.
