Angroves proved to have a high contribution in protecting coastal food stocks and natural fortresses from the tsunami. Nearly a quarter of the world's mangroves or at least 3.5 million hectares of mangrove land exists in Indonesia. One of the factors that make the damage that occurs in mangrove ecosystems is management that is not done properly. It needs to be studied regarding the management and utilization of mangrove ecosystems as well as examining government regulations related to mangrove ecosystems. The research objective was to determine the management of the mangrove ecosystem and government regulations in maintenance, as well as the role of the Muhammadiyah mangrove community in the preservation of the mangrove ecosystem. This study uses qualitative methods that describe the governance and utilization as well as existing regulations including coordination, integration and cooperation in the implementation of effective and efficient mangrove ecosystem management. This study did not conduct surveys or direct assessments in the field regarding the condition of mangrove ecosystems. Data analysis techniques using qualitative analysis techniques with a variety of variations. Participants numbered 8 people. The results showed that there were good regulations between the community and the government and the BPBD initiated by the Mangrove Community of Muhammadiyah as a form of disaster mitigation for disaster risk reduction by managing and maintaining mangrove ecosystems in coastal areas.
