       PROGRESSIVE ENVIRONMENTAL LAW OF
 INDONESIA: GLOBAL PRINCIPLES OF STOCKHOLM
 AND RIO DECLARATIONS AS DEFINED WITHIN THE
 2009 ACT ON HUMAN ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION
                     AND MANAGEMENT

                         I Nyoman Nurjaya*

        In accordance with the effort of coping and settling more effectively
    human environment legal problems, as well as natural environment
    pollution and resources degradation in the country in line with rapid
    implementation of national development, the Government of Indonesia has
    time to time been struggling to establish a more progressive national
    environmental law. Recently, the development of environmental law has
    come to the progressive era since the enactment of the 2009 Act on human
    environment protection and management as to replace the 1997 Act on
    human environment management. The recently Act of 2009 could be noted
    as a progressive environmental law along with historical environmental
    law development. It is because the 2009 Act clearly accommodate global
    principles as constituted within both the 1997 Stockholm and the 1992 Rio
    Declarations. The paper attempts to outline a historical overview and
    provide general framework of the development of national environmental
    law in the country of Indonesia.
