Desa Mandiri Peduli Gambut (DMPG, Independent Village Cares for Peat) is a concept to regulate fairer agrarian relations based on village-based restoration and management of peatlands and the Kawasan Hidrologi Gambut (KHG, Peat Hydrological Unit). Mekarsari village in Kubu Raya regency is one of models targeted by Badan Restorasi Gambut dan Mangrove (BRGM, Peats and Mangrove Restoration Agency) to support peatlands restoration in entire KHG Sungai Terentang-Sungai Kapuas. This article will describe how DMPG concept with Social-Ecological System, Sustainable Rural Livelihood, and Social Resilience approaches can see simultaneously the efforts of economic, social, and environmental sustainability. The DMPG concept shows that peatland restoration must always coexist with saving the community's economy, environmental sustainability, and supporting social and cultural advancement of the surrounding community, which requires non-exploitative agrarian relations.
