Environmental regulation in Indonesia
Warren, C. and Elston, K. (1994) Environmental regulation in Indonesia. University of Western Australia Press/Asia Research Centre on Social, Political and Economic Change. Murdoch University, University of Western Australia, Nedlands.
Since the early 1980s environmental regulation has received high priority in Indonesian policy making. Given Indonesia's dependence upon foreign donors for its economic program, external pressures inevitably played a significant role in stimulating this development. But internally generated factors were also of considerable importance. Mounting evidence of the economic and social costs of environmental degradation, the rise of a middle class, and the connection between environmental questions and other hotly contested political issues such as conflicts over land tenure and resources, the rights of workers, farmers and indigenous minorities, the demand for democratisation and greater press freedom all played a part in, moving the environment to centre stage.
