The aim of this research is to find out how big the impact of land use change that occurs on the food security of farm households in West Lombok Regency.   

  The main source of income for households is that they do not transfer functions or the ones that function are from farming. Households that do not change their land use have a greater opportunity for good food access, and farming income for non-functioned households has a positive effect on the opportunity to have good food access. The people who were previously farm laborers and tenants are now building laborers / construction workers around the housing construction. Master pland is sometimes not considered by the bearer, the important location of the land is profitable for them. The concern is that after completion of housing construction, they will have work difficulties.

                    Recommendations that can be given include, among others, the Government should stop / control land use change. This control effort is not only in the making of rules, but also oversees and monitors the implementation of these regulations to ensure there is no land conversion. Providing incentives to farm households that seek farming in productive land should also be sought, so that they do not convert their land.
