Bandung is one of the best tourist destinations in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. Bandung has its own charm as a tourist spot with a variety of tourist attractions ranging from natural, culinary, heritage and cultural tourism. Tourism supports 40% of Bandung City's Regional Revenue and one of the tourist areas is Punclut. At first Punclut area was a green hills. Since the 1990s, there have been many travelers go to Punclut just to exercise in the morning. Now, there were more and more travelers with varied purposes, like for having meals or just hang out. Slowly, more and more commercial buildings were built in this area. Most of the designation is for restaurants. This conditions of course has an impact on the ecology of the area. Therefore, the authors conducted a study to determine an environmental sustainability in the Punclut area through the perceptions of tourists who have come to Punclut. The research was conducted using a qualitative method by conducting literature studies and distributing digital questionnaires through the Google Docs application. The results showed that environmental sustainability in the Punclut area was perceived by tourists who had visited there as "moderate" with a "good" tendency.

Watersheds (DAS), which are river basins flowing in one outlet and limited by hills and mountains, often occur in land degradation or erosion. Erosion that occurs is said to be safe if it does not exceed the tolerable erosion or erosion tolerance limits or often called T-values. With regard to problems on sloping land in a watershed, the purpose of this study is to calculate the value of T-values or erosion tolerance limits. Calculation of T-values using the Hammer method (1981), namely by observing the factors of soil depth and effective depth of roots, and resources life of 300 or 400 years. T-value results are classified into 4 classes, namely (tons/ha/year) : (1) very low ( 50). The research location in the Tulis watershed is 12,750 ha in DTW (Reservoir Catchment Area) Mrica Banjarnegara. From the calculation of the T-value obtained results: very low 0.03% (3.8 ha), low 2.46% (313.7 ha), high 49.31% (6,287 ha), and very high 48.2% (6,145.5 ha).

Periphyton group are biota communities that be able adapt and grow well in lentic waters. Their habits are adhere to a permanent location. Aquatic vegetation in Bangkau can influenced the periphyton abundance and diversity as natural food in the food chain. The purpose of this study was to analyzed abundance and diversity of Periphyton from different aquatic vegetation. The research was conducted in three stations by purposive sampling. The method used was quantitative explored. The data that has been taken were epiphythic periphyton samples. Periphyton sampling procedures, preservation, and analysis were carried out based on Indonesian National Standard methods. Bangkau’s peatland had the highest abundance of phytoplankton-periphyton (9982 sel/liter) in inlet, but low at middle station (778 sel/liter). Zooplankton-periphyton (553 sel/liter) in middle station was the highest abundance whereas in outlet station (153 sel/liter) was the lowest. Bacillariophyceae had predominant and always attendanced Oscillatoria, Closterium, Planktonella, Diatom, meanwhile zooplankton-periphyton dominated Ciliophora in all stations and sampling. Diversity index of phytoplankton-periphyton in inlet station (1,55) was the highest and in inlet (0,77) was the lowest. Zooplankton-periphyton in middle (1,76) and outlet (0,94) was different based on Shannon wiener’s Index. The abundance index of Bangkau were mesotrophic categorized for phytoplankton-periphyton and oligotrophic for zooplankton-periphyton. Due to the low level of species diversity (H’≤ 3) showed moderate stability and for the water quality conditions was moderate polluted.

Banjarmasin is dominated with the combination of land and river, which resulted many riverside areas in the city. These areas are functioned as settlements area, as well as commercial and public areas as the focus of the city’s development and the local’s daily activities. However, the rapid development in Banjarmasin still giving less attention to the development of green open spaces, despite the local connection with the river. Therefore, this research aimed to identify the local perception of green open space in the riverside areas of Banjarmasin through descriptive qualitative analysis. Questionnaires and observations in five study areas were done to obtain the local perception. The results show that the highest local perception index is for the social aspects for 87,2 points and the lowest local perception index is the spatial planning aspects for 42,6 points. Banjarmasin needs to focus more on the spatial planning of green open spaces in riverside areas and enhancing the opportunity for locals to participate in any spatial planning process (participatory planning).

Biopore infiltration hole are hole made for run-off flow which if allowed to cause erosion and can remove the topsoil, causing soil fertility to be reduced. The use of biopori infiltration holes can be maximized by adding organic matters into the hope that in addition to absorbing water it can increase soil fertility. The liquid waste of tofu and meranti litter is an organic matters are used in this study, by adding organic matters to the biopori hole. This study aims to look at the effect of providing organic matters in the biopore hole derived from tofu and litter liquid waste on the value of pH, C-Organic, and post-mining CEC. This study was an experimental study in the field using a completely randomized design of one factor, namely organic matters with six levels, namely without organic matters and using 25 g, 50 g, 75 g, and 100 gr organic matters given to the biopori hole in incubation for one month later Soil samples taken were analyzed for pH, C-organic, and CEC. The results showed that the treatment only affected the soil's pH value. Organic material provided in the biopori hole is thought to have not completely decomposed, causing the soil around the biopori infiltration hole to remain acidic. The acidity of the soil is due to the gases produced during the decomposition process. Changes in soil pH ranged from 4.36 to 4.65 by administering 75g of organic matters from tofu liquid waste and meranti litter. This research is useful in post-mining land reclamation in increasing soil fertility, with the improvement of soil chemical properties such as pH will slowly improve the physical and biological properties of the soil so that it can be used as cultivation land.

The COVID-19 pandemic was outbreak since January 2020 has now spread out to 213 countries, infected 29,227,348 people and 929,263 deaths. In Indonesia, 221,523 people were infected and 8,841 of them died. Neither the vaccine nor the cure has been found, but the researchers recommend that people consume various types of rhizome plants, moringa, guava, and others as prevention. The opportunity for the Indonesian people to increase their sovereignty in facing the COVID-19 pandemic is very overt because it has a geographical advantage as a tropical country traversed by the equator and fertile soil. This study aims to determine the use of backyards and its importance in promote family health amid the COVID-19 outbreak. This research was conducted in Pacitan Regency, East Java, from March 16 to April 17, 2020 through a qualitative approach with a combined method of questionnaires (162 people), in-depth interviews (18 people), and desk study. The findings showed that 95.06% of respondents agreed that the backyard was an environmental asset, 100% agreed that the backyard could be used to fulfill the needs of vegetables and toga. As 78.4% of respondents have planted vegetables and toga in their backyards and 64.2% feel calmer in facing the COVID-19 pandemic in terms of availability of the need for vegetables and traditional herbal ingredients. This is stated as an ease of concocting traditional herbal medicine and fulfilling kitchen needs for 86.42% of respondents and 57.41% assessed that their families do not depend on market uncertainty because the pattern of backyard use is carried out by growing vegetables and toga plants. The backyard as an environmental asset can promote the realization of food sovereignty (non-rice) and family health if it is managed properly, both flat and vertically.
