Reclamation on the post nickel mining area in East Luwu needs to be conducted with concern to the environment sustainability and local economic growth. It can be implemented with appropriate public policy by the regional government offices. The study aimed to determine the priority scale of policies that support the reclamation in the post nickel mining area in Sorowako, District of Nuha, Regency of East Luwu. The study was conducted in the reclamation area of post nickel mining East Luwu Regency, South Sulawesi. Data were collected from questionnaire from related stakeholders, e.g. the community, the mining company, regional government office, department of forestry, and NGO. The assessment of analytic hierarchy process (AHP) used pairwise comparison to determine the priority scale. The supporting data used documents of the socio-economic and socio-ecologic externality on the reclamation taken from regional offices, the mining company, community, department of forestry and environment NGO. Through this study, we suggest three strategic priorities for the policy on the post nickel mining reclamation area, as follows. First is the operational management (0.792), while the second level policy is the empowerment and participation of the community (0.655) on the reclamation of post nickel mining area. Finally, the last level policy is the regulation and institutional management towards the post nickel mining reclamation with scale of 0.453.
