In the perspective of sustainability, agroforestry is the last resort of natural resource management which synergizes productivity escalation that meets sustainable principles. However, agroforestry management in Indonesia is still trivial and traditional. This research was done to develop compatible agroforestry development schemes as pro poor technology to support prospective and sustainable management.Research was conducted in Sambak village, Kajoran District, Magelang Regency, Central Java Province, Indonesia. Sambak village has been set by the Ministry of Forestry c.q. the Directorate of Land Rehabilitation and Social Forestry as a model or pilot village for national level program of micro watershed area management since 2008. The research was conducted with Agroforestry Diagnosis and Design approach (D & D) in combination with Rapid Rural Appraisal (RRA). The research has revealed that agroforestry characteristics in homegarden, dry field, and fields are developed in a simple and traditional way. In addition, there is little connectivity between homegarden, dry field agroforestry, dry field and rice field agroforestry as a unit of ownership and state forests that managed through collaborative forest management schemes or Pengelolaan Hutan Bersama Masyarakat (PHBM). Therefore, it is necessary to apply management strategies by developing compatible management between private agroforestry and managed state forests with PHBM scheme. Three approaches can be proposed simultaneously: 1) land units by redesigning agroforestry system, family unit by reconnecting each land unit, and landscape unit as the old growth forests. Three approaches are fully developed with compatible management.
