Purpose of this study is to map the adaptability of local communities in the face of pressure when they experience conflicts over forest resources with the government. The study took place in the Gunung Halimun Salak National Park (GHSNP), West Java and Sungai Utik Forest, West Kalimantan, Indonesia. The GHSNP area is a conservation forest whose habitat inside is protected by the Government. This area is adjacent to the Kasepuhan community. Meanwhile, Sungai Utik forest is a production forest whose utilization permit is controlled by a private company. This area is also claimed to be the customary forest of the Dayak Iban community. This study used qualitative methods by taking data through in-depth interviews and participant observation. Then the data were analyzed by qualitative analysis. The findings of this study are theories of social resilience in the struggle for natural resources. This theory proved that the adaptability of local community will emerge when they face a problem or conflict. The same experiences of adverse events that were very stressful with high-stress levels gave rise to different adaptation reactions in the two communities. It was due to different supporting factors. In the Dayak Iban community, the ability of adaptation comes from the support of other parties, while Kasepuhan community adaptation comes from the ability of individuals to maintain relationships with other parties. The assumptions and facts found in this study gave birth to new findings of the theory of social resilience in the struggle for forest resources.
