The Bali Province Forestry and Environment Service (DKLH) has held strategic strengthening activities for two days, namely 24 and 27 May 2022 at the Bali Province DKLH office. This activity aims to map obstacles, develop solutions, and create concrete action plans to implement regulatory enforcement. This activity is supported by the Indonesian Zero Waste Alliance (AZWI), the Bali Center for Environmental Education (PPLH), the Indonesian Center for Environmental Law (ICEL), and the Indonesian Plastic Bag Diet Movement (GIDKP).

From these activities, the Bali Provincial Government has prepared an action plan to strengthen the ban on single-use plastics in relation to Bali Provincial Governor Regulation No. 97 of 2018 concerning Limiting the Generation of Single-Use Plastic Waste, which was prepared together with OPD at the provincial, district and city levels, and community groups.

“The contents of the action plan include the formation of a cross-sectoral monitoring team, technical instructions (juknis) for imposing sanctions, facilitating channels for public complaints regarding violations, and giving awards to business actors who practice good practices,” said Tiza Mafira, Executive Director of the Indonesian Pocket Diet Movement. Plastik (GIDKP) who is also a facilitator in the workshop. “Implementation of the action plan that will be implemented this year will be carried out in synergy with the waste management policy at source, including limiting or stopping the distribution of single-use plastics in Bali. “This action plan also requires adequate budgets at both the provincial and district/city levels,” added Fajri Fadhillah, Head of the Pollution and Environmental Damage Control Division of the Indonesian Center for Environmental Law (ICEL).

“This workshop activity is a preparation to respond to the waste emergency conditions that are currently occurring in Bali Province, where one of the conditions is the plan to close the Suwung TPA before the G20 Summit is held in November. “It is hoped that the action plans formulated in today’s activities can be detailed by each OPD so that the reduction in single-use plastics according to regulations can decrease significantly,” said I Made Dwi Arbani, Head of the Waste Management, B3 Waste and PPKLH Division of the Forestry and Environment Service ( DKLH) Bali Province.

Currently, the use of single-use plastics is increasing again along with the full opening of economic activities in Bali. “Limited research on the Plastic Free Market at Sindu Market in Sanur by PPLH Bali and GIDKP (2022) also shows that the use of plastic bags, both large and small, has increased by 70%,” said Catur Yudha Hariani, Director of the Center for Environmental Education (PPLH ) Bali who is also the facilitator in the workshop.
