Current impact of climate change, especially extreme events
(such as: heat wave in northem hemisphere or extremely heavy
rainfall in Java) and climate related-disasters (like: flood,
drought, landslides, forest fires, etc) is increasingly felt by
people, has led to climate change is now not just an issue
anymore, it has become a real problem that to be tackled not
only through international level through multilateral approach
(convention), but also through national/local level.
This complex problem has challenge all of us, of course based
on its role and capacity. Considering its nature that is
complicated and cross-sectoral as well as affecting to all people,
to cope with this problem we have to apply multi-layer
approaches. It needs to involve active role of all layers of
government/ administration from central, including the House
of Representatives), until the lowest level (village/desa/
kelurahan), not only environment related institutions but also
all components of the nation.
From the view of top-down approach, one of strategic and long/
medium-term steps is revitalization (including reviewing and
gradual revision) of all relevant acts and regulations until it
created a new products of law that are not only implementable
but also contribute significantly to problem solving as well as
anticipative measures that could help reduce possilbe climate
risks in the near future. This could be achieved only by creating
a ‘climate proof or climate smart’ law system.
