This research aims to analyze and describe the implementation of collaborative governance in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) for forest and land fires. This study used a qualitative approach with a case study in Central Kalimantan of Indonesia, to measure the level of success of DRR collaborative governance in the region. This is carried out by exploring and evaluating the extent to which the principles and dynamics of collaborative governance and the SDGs are implemented. Data was collected through interviews with relevant stakeholders, field observations, and literature reviews. The results show that the implementation of DRR collaborative governance in Central Kalimantan is carried out in several ways, including the formation of the Forest and Fire Prevention Forum (FFPF), development of the Forest and Land Fire Information System, increasing community capacity, and law enforcement. Additionally, the integration of local wisdom in DRR management makes a crucial and impactful contribution. The study's conclusive results demonstrate the effectiveness of collaborative governance in DRR, evidenced by a significant reduction in forest and land fires from 2.6 million hectares in 2015 to 1.5 million hectares in 2023. This research has the potential to significantly enhance the quality of collaborative governance in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in forests and land fires, offering substantial contributions to the development of best practices in disaster mitigation.
