Abstract: The wetland conversion is completely a risk which induces staple food scarcity and needs proper mitigation. This research was conducted in Indonesia, aims bto decide a complete Wetland Conversion Risk (WCR) mitigation, majorly in post-harvest phase, to optimize staple food availability. Following, House of Risk (HOR) logical analysis, the research identified qualitatively the event of WCR based on farmer condition, WCR agents and finally, the probable WCR mitigation. The Likert scale measurement revealed five main WCR events. The HOR-1 analysis pointed out, the absence of control mechanism to get balance profit between agricultural and non-agricultural sectors is the main agent needs priority to mitigate. In light of HOR-2 analysis, the main WCR mitigation is controlling rice distribution from farmer to consumer, improving the aids for farmer and purchasing rice from the farmer by reasonable price. The agricultural extension should be based on such mitigations.
