Sustainable development as a development process giving environmental aspect needs attention. As an effort to reach sustainable development, the United Nations envisioned comprehensive vision to reach the better world in 2030 through Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Gender equality and land ecosystem are considered two of seventeen objectives of SDGs, where land ecosystem covers forest management to actualize sustainable forest. Since 2000 the Indonesian government echoed gender mainstreaming strategy through gender-perspective integration in various fields of development. Even, the Forest Minister in 2011 and 2017 issued regulation on gender mainstreaming in living environment and forestry. This research aims at studying gender responsiveness of policy on forest management. It is a qualitative descriptive research conducted in Central Java Province since the location constitutes a preserved forest with wide critical land. Documentation studies and in-depth interview were employed as data collecting technique. The research result reveals that forest management in the national level is gender-responsive, namely it has considered the different needs between men and women. However, policy in the local level is still neutral gender. Women have access towards forest sources but they don’t have control on it. The social norms about gender role contributed to gender relation in forest management.
