In 2013 Indonesia discharged over 0.5 billion tonnes of carbon monoxide which is the
coequal to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of over 105.26 million commuter vehicles
and the year 2015 showed a marked rise (4%) from the previous year. The 2015 global emissions database also shows Indonesia is among the G20 countries, who as a whole are responsible for 81.5% of global CO2 emissions, with Indonesia becoming the 10th largest emitter.
There is a dichotomy between the data air quality measurements available from government sources and the media or public sentiments on the issue of air pollution. This has led civil society organizations (CSO’s) working in the region, to raise concerns and push for more public awareness on the worsening condition with the aim of wheedling government into acting.
There are various policy instruments that governments may incorporate to attain a
desired outcome, and this paper we will be recommending tree possible policy
alternatives which may address the problem. The tools proposed include regulation (legal), economic (incentives) and education measures, and do not refer explicitly to the actions of government alone, but identify actions from a wide range of actors.
