Abstract

Bedoyo Village and Umbul Rejo Village geographically located at Gunung Sewu karst area that have a geological heritage Luweng Cokro, it has been established by Global Geopark Network UNESCO as world geological heritage. Concern conflict to undertake conservation and community pressure to exploit karst natural resources in Bedoyo Village and Umbulrejo Vilage will inflict the problems of land degradation in karst area. This research aimed to evaluated land capability, actual land use suitability, and provided land use directives to support sustainable geopark in Bedoyo Village and Umbul Rejo Village by using GIS approach. Land use in Bedoyo Village and Umbulrejo Village are classified as suitable land with area 604,42 hectars and 979,49 hectars, positive unsuitable land area 243,06 hectars and 236,60 hectars, and negative unsuitable land area 140,77 hectars and 162,20 hectars. Land use in Bedoyo Village and Umbul Rejo Village are classified as suitable land with concept of geopark developmentĀ  with area 847,80 ha and 1.248,69 ha and unsuitable land area 142,20 ha and 131,31 ha.. The land use suitability aspect shown that land use in Bedoyo Village and Umbul Rejo Village has been classified as suitable, this is shown by dominance of suitable land in both villages and the karst area management strategy must prioritize conservation actions to maintain sustainability geopark in Bedoyo Village and Umbul Rejo Village.
