The upstream Ciliwung river areas are now mostly occupied by critical lands due to deforestation and can also be the response to climate change. This condition leads to disasters at the downstream, including Jakarta. Lots of government programs have been conducted to control the critical land, but the results are not visible. The failure of rehabilitation programs are suspected to be caused by some factors, one of the most prominent is access to the area where the government does not wholly own the control of land rights. On the other hand, the function of protected areas should be maintained. A management model that has been successfully implemented is by "Hutan Organik or Organic Forest" in Megamendung. This model is community participation with private forestry, whereas the main purpose is to recover the function of the area. By using desk study, a survey of an existing condition and in-depth interview, this paper has a purpose of studying the private forestry policy model for critical land rehabilitation in the upstream of the Ciliwung river. Organic forestry program shows the success of community participation in land rehabilitation and can be developed as an alternative model in reconstructing critical land at upstream in Indonesia.
