Belajar Dari Kegalalan Politik Pengelolaan Sda Orde Baru: Studi Kasus Kalimantan Timur, Aleksis Jemadu

Indonesian Journal of International Law

The province of East Kalimantan has the largers tropical forests in Indonesia. throughout the era of the New Order government under President Soeharto the natural resources especially tropical forests were sistematically exploited without any serious effort on the part of the government and private companies to take care of the social and environmental aspect of such exploitation. As a result, severe environmental degradation took place and the local people in the country side lost their sources of livelihood. In the midst of the presence of multinational corporations and private forest concessionaires ironically there were enclaves of poverty. In this area ...

Memerangi Kejahatan Kehutanan Dan Mendorong Prinsip Kehati-Hatian Perbankan Untuk Mewujudkan Pengelolaan Hutan Yang Berkelanjutan Pendekatan Anti Pencucian Uang, Bambang Setiono, Yunus Husein

Indonesian Journal of International Law

If the illegal logging is just a criminal whose involve the poor society which their life depend to the forest, truck driver or forest guards whose underpaid, that criminal would not be difficult to stop. With the involvement of support from the illegal logging funders, which usually called cukong, illegal logging industry and government employees, the illegal logging has become a complex problem, not only in Indonesia, but also for the international forest community. The forestry law enforcement approach which now is running failed to capture the mastermind of illegal logging. But, the money laundering law enforcement approach which with ...


Piracy In South East Asia: Indonesian & Regional Responses, Hasjim Djalal Aug 2021

Piracy In South East Asia: Indonesian & Regional Responses, Hasjim Djalal

Indonesian Journal of International Law

Piracy in high seas has caused a problem itself because there are no particular jurisdictionof any state that governed it. This particular issue falls onto universal jurisdiction in which any state has a jurisdiction to enforce their national regulation about piracy itself. On the other hand, we don’t have sufficient international instrument which obliges the contracting states initiating a cooperation between them to combat piracy. An international cooperation, and even on regional basis (such as ASEAN and Asia-Pacific region) has already taken initiatives to combat piracy. Indonesia, as one of the states involved in international and regional basis regarding ...


Toxicology Of Chemical Stress To Monarch Butterflies (Danaus Plexippus L.), Annie Krueger Aug 2021

Toxicology Of Chemical Stress To Monarch Butterflies (Danaus Plexippus L.), Annie Krueger

Dissertations and Student Research in Entomology

Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus L.) population declines have caught the attention of the country and prompted nationwide conservation initiatives. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service has identified insecticide exposure and loss of milkweed (Asclepias spp.) reproductive habitat as primary threats to the monarch. In the Midwestern US, milkweed largely occurs around cropland borders where there may be a spatial and temporal overlap of monarch larvae, insecticide usage, and fertilizer applications. In this study, the acute toxicity and sub-lethal effects on growth and diet consumption of two commonly used pyrethroid insecticides, bifenthrin and beta-cyfluthrin, were characterized in fifth instar monarch ...

A Paper Tiger? Prosecutorial Regulators In China’S Civil Environmental Public Interest Litigations, Chunyan Ding, Huina Xiao Jun 2021

A Paper Tiger? Prosecutorial Regulators In China’S Civil Environmental Public Interest Litigations, Chunyan Ding, Huina Xiao

Fordham Environmental Law Review

In July 2015, China’s national legislature brought in prosecutor-led civil environmental public interest litigation (“EPIL”) for thirteen selected provincial areas of the country. After a two-year legal experiment, this prosecutor-led civil EPIL system was then established nationwide in July 2017. Yet, can it be said that prosecutorial regulators in China are in fact a paper tiger? Drawing upon content analysis of the 655 prosecutor-led civil EPILs and in-depth interviews with twelve frontline prosecutors and judges, this article examines the dynamics of regulatory practice and the motivation of the Chinese prosecutorial organs to engage in environmental regulation through litigation. Based ...

No More Shade: Deforestation And Rural-Urban Migration In Nigeria, Kambre Sims May 2021

No More Shade: Deforestation And Rural-Urban Migration In Nigeria, Kambre Sims

Master's Theses

Some of the most well-documented motivating factors of migration in Nigeria include education, employment opportunities, and cultural conflicts. However, as the deforestation crisis has not improved and Nigeria has maintained its spot as the country with the most deforestation on Earth, access to critical forest resources may be in danger. In light of this crisis, this paper attempts to determine if deforestation has become a new motivating factor for migration as those in rural communities seek other avenues of obtaining those vital resources. Subsequently, Nigeria is also experiencing a housing crisis within its rapidly growing urban centers; obtaining and keeping ...

Analysis Of The Socio-Economic Impacts Of A Proposed Highway Between Nuevo Italia And Puerto Breu, Peru, M. R. Place *, E. Zizzamia, D. S. Salisbury, V. Galati, S. Spera

Arts & Sciences Student Symposium

Road building is increasingly promoted in the borderlands shared by Peru and Brazil despite an incomplete understanding of the socio-environmental impacts of transportation infrastructure in the region. Amazonian roads often expand informally, without official government process, previous consultation by Indigenous populations, and environmental impact statements.. Amazonian road expansion also often follows a progressive feedback cycle, with new, unplanned roads begetting illegal logging pathways and agricultural expansion which in turn expands and formalizes road systems. One expanding road system is developing between the Ucayali River and the remote headwaters of the Yurua/Jurua River. The Carretera Yurua (officially trail UC-105), extended ...

Effects Of Land Use In Nebraska On Insect Biodiversity And Eastern Monarch Populations, Carina Olivetti Jan 2021

Effects Of Land Use In Nebraska On Insect Biodiversity And Eastern Monarch Populations, Carina Olivetti

Environmental Studies Undergraduate Student Theses

How are Nebraska land use decisions affecting eastern monarch butterfly decline? What are the driving factors causing monarch decline? What are the challenges of insect monitoring and data organizing? The purpose of this exploratory research project was to investigate these questions and simultaneously illustrate the importance of insect biodiversity, focusing largely on the monarch butterfly. The eastern population of the monarch butterfly has declined 80% over the past two decades. The state of Nebraska lies within their migratory path and is therefore critical to their survival. The hypothesis is that monarch populations are declining because of the combined impacts of ...


¿Usar O Perder Los Bosques? Extracciónregulada De Madera Y Pérdida De Cobertura Forestal En Mexico, Allen Blackman, Laura Villalobos Jan 2021

¿Usar O Perder Los Bosques? Extracciónregulada De Madera Y Pérdida De Cobertura Forestal En Mexico, Allen Blackman, Laura Villalobos

Security Research Hub Reports

Un conjunto creciente de investigadores y responsables de política pública sostienen, de manera un tanto contraintuitiva, que la extracción regulada de madera puede ayudar a conservar los bosques en los países en desarrollo al desalentar la tala ilegal y el cambio de uso de suelo. Sin embargo, las pruebas rigurosas de esa hipótesis son escasas. Utilizamos modelos de diferencias en diferencias para medir el efecto neto de la concesión de permisos de extracción de madera en la pérdida de cobertura forestal en México entre 2001 y 2012. Nuestros hallazgos sugieren que los permisos no tienen grandes efectos sistemáticos sobre la ...

Illegal Logging, Governance Effectiveness And Carbon Dioxide Emission In The Timber‑Producing Countries Of Congo Basin And Asia, Serge Mandiefe Piabuo, Peter A. Minang, Chupezi Julius Tieguhong, Divine Foundjem‑Tita, Frankline Nghobuoche

Security Research Hub Reports

The empirical link between governance and illegal logging is widely accepted amongst scientist, although a minority still purports that illegal logging does not necessarily prevail because of poor governance. However, the nexus linking governance, illegal logging and carbon emission is not well enshrined in scientific literature. This paper seeks to review the literature on illegal logging and governance and empirically investigate the effect of illegal logging and governance effectiveness on carbon emission. Using panel dynamic ordinary least square method on data covering three Congo Basin timber-producing countries and three Asian timber-producing countries, this paper further investigates disaggregated effects between these ...

Transnational Organized Crime And Security Threats In The Context Of Bangladesh, Ishtiak Ahmed Talukder

Security Research Hub Reports

Crime has many faces, and transnational organized crime is one of them. Since business is a natural activity of human beings, they have found numerous ways to conduct it. With the pace of time state system got structured and more regularised in order to perform business smoothly. However, with the birth of ‘border’ and regularised business ideas, a new security threat emerged, which is transnational organized crime. With the increase of criminal organizations and the availability of modern technology, the degree of transnational threat has multiplied where only an organized and high level of an internationally authorized group can address ...

Risk Analysis Of Regions With Suspicious Illegal Logging And Their Trade Flows, Jiunn-Cheng Lin, Jun-Yen Lee, Wan-Yu Liu Jan 2021

Risk Analysis Of Regions With Suspicious Illegal Logging And Their Trade Flows, Jiunn-Cheng Lin, Jun-Yen Lee, Wan-Yu Liu

Security Research Hub Reports

To eradicate illegally harvested wood sources in its domestic market, it is critical to conduct risk assessments on wood sourcing in regions with illegal loggings. It is not reliable to use a single indicator to analyze suspicious illegal logging. This study integrates three key global indicators: CPI (Corruption Perceptions Index), HDI (Human Development Indicator), and WGI (The Worldwide Governance Indicators) by applying the entropy weight method to establish a new risk indicator to rank suspicious illegal logging regions. This study aims to establish better risk indicators by considering more factors to assess the risks of illegal logging and its trade ...


Resource-Seeking And Oviposition Behaviors In The Monarch Butterfly: Implications For Habitat Restoration Across An Agricultural Landscape, Alexander Nicholas Mullins Jan 2021

Resource-Seeking And Oviposition Behaviors In The Monarch Butterfly: Implications For Habitat Restoration Across An Agricultural Landscape, Alexander Nicholas Mullins

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Habitat loss and fragmentation are major threats to wildlife biodiversity globally. Facilitating movement across such fragmented landscapes remains an ongoing challenge for wildlife conservation. Overcoming this challenge is particularly important for vagile insect species that search throughout a landscape for necessary resources. One such species, the North American monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus), has faced substantial declines over recent decades. Extensive loss of monarch habitat across the U.S is implicated as a major contributor to population declines. Restoration of an estimated 1.3 to 1.6 billion stems of milkweed, the monarch’s obligate larval host species, across the breeding ...

Effects Of Dicamba On Monarch Oviposition And Larval Growth And Development, Sahar Saghi

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Eastern monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus L.) are iconic creatures that migrate thousands of kilometers every year to overwinter in Mexico's Oyamel fir forest. The eastern monarch butterfly population has decreased as much as 84% between 1997 and 2015 (Thogmartin et al., 2017), and it comprises a large proportion of the global monarch population (Brower, 2014). Many factors contribute to this decline, including habitat destruction, lack of host plants, agricultural practices, climate change, and infection by the parasite Ophryocystis elektroscirrha (OE). Herbicide use in crop fields across monarch butterflies breeding range may impact host plants' availability and quality within and ...

Using New And Long-Term Multi-Scale Remotely Sensed Data To Detect Recurrent Fires And Quantify Their Relationship To Land Cover/Use In Indonesian Peatlands, Yenni Vetrita

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Indonesia has committed to reducing its greenhouse gases emissions by 29% (potentially up to 41% with international assistance) by 2030. Achieving those targets requires many efforts but, in particular, controlling the fire problem in Indonesia’s peatlands is paramount, since it is unlikely to diminish on its own in the coming decades. This study was conducted in Sumatra and Kalimantan peatlands in Indonesia. Four MODIS-derived products (MCD45A1 collection 5.1, MCD64A1 (collection 5.1 and 6), FireCCI51) were initially assessed to explore long-term fire frequency and land use/cover change relationships. The results indicated the product(s) could only detect ...

The Amazon Ablaze: Are The Environmental Policies Of The Bolsanaro Administrative In Contravention Of Brazil’S Commitment To The Convention On Biological Diversity?, Jordan Johnson

Brooklyn Journal of International Law

In the Summer of 2019, the Amazonian Rainforest in Brazil experienced an unprecedented increase forest fires. This dramatic uptick in forest fires, according to environmental officials and scientists, is believed to have been caused by recent, rampant illegal deforestation of the Brazilian Amazonian Rainforest. Furthermore, some within the scientific community believe that the increased deforestation and ensuing forest fires are attributable to the anti-environmental protections and pro-development policies of Brazil's President, Jair Bolsonaro. Since taking office in January 2019, President Bolsonaro has publicly endorsed and encouraged deforestation of the Amazon as a means to spur economic development within Brazil ...

Artificial Intelligence For Social Impact: Learning And Planning In The Data-To-Deployment Pipeline, Andrew Perrault, Fei Fang, Arunesh Sinha, Milind Tambe

Research Collection School Of Computing and Information Systems

With the maturing of artificial intelligence (AI) and multiagent systems research, we have a tremendous opportunity to direct these advances toward addressing complex societal problems. In pursuit of this goal of AI for social impact, we as AI researchers must go beyond improvements in computational methodology; it is important to step out in the field to demonstrate social impact. To this end, we focus on the problems of public safety and security, wildlife conservation, and public health in low-resource communities, and present research advances in multiagent systems to address one key cross-cutting challenge: how to effectively deploy our limited intervention ...

Shared-Use Infrastructure Along The World’S Largest Iron Ore Operation: Lessons Learned From The Carajás Corridor, Martin Dietrich Brauch, Nicolas Maennling, Perrine Toledano, Edgar Santos Monteiro, Felipe Botelho Tavares

Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment Staff Publications

To be beneficial for a country’s development, non-renewable resource extraction should be leveraged to build long-term assets, such as infrastructure, that will support sustainable and inclusive growth. This is especially critical for countries facing an infrastructure-funding gap (e.g. the World Bank’s Africa Infrastructure Country Diagnostic has estimated that Africa faces an annual infrastructure funding gap of US$31 billion); leveraging extractive industry-related investment could help fill this gap. Historically, natural resource concessionaires have adopted an enclave approach to infrastructure development, providing their own power and transportation services to ensure that the basic infrastructure needed for their operations ...


Covid-19 And The Environment: Reflections On The Pandemic In Asia, Hao Huang Sep 2020

Covid-19 And The Environment: Reflections On The Pandemic In Asia, Hao Huang

EnviroLab Asia

The idea of planetary health as a form of scholarly analysis and scientific investigation has particular relevance to the COVID-19 pandemic and to Asia, where the outbreak of the novel coronavirus was first reported. Over the past three decades, the continent’s rapid urbanization and industrialization have played a significant role in the region’s economic growth, increase in per capita income and the concentration of wealth, and the creation of some of the world’s fast-growing cities. These profound benefits have come with some serious consequences, however, and planetary-health experts have stressed that one of them has been the ...


A Behavioral Approach To Bilateral Cooperation On Criminal Laws: A Case Study On Indonesia’S Extradition And Mutual Legal Assistance Treaties, Harison Citrawan, Muhammad Fedian Aug 2020

A Behavioral Approach To Bilateral Cooperation On Criminal Laws: A Case Study On Indonesia’S Extradition And Mutual Legal Assistance Treaties, Harison Citrawan, Muhammad Fedian

Indonesia Law Review

The effectiveness of bilateral agreements in the context of criminal law enforcement remains highly contested. In the Indonesian context, such bilateral cooperation classifies two modalities of indirect law enforcement systems, namely, extradition and mutual legal assistance (MLA) in criminal matters. This article attempts to explain these modalities through a behavioral and rational approach by taking Indonesia’s MLA treaty with Switzerland and its extradition treaty with the Russian Federation as a case study. From this approach, we argue that the state’s decision to cooperate implies the adoption of control and consensus models. However, these two models were induced by ...

Population Status, Threats, And Conservation Of Preuss's Red Colobus (Piliocolobus Preussi) And Other Diurnal Primates In The Ndokbou Forest, Littoral Region, Cameroon, Ruth Bowers-Sword

Masters Theses, 2020-current

The Ebo-Makombe-Ndokbou forest block in southwest Cameroon lies within the Gulf of Guinea biodiversity hotspot, characterized by extremely high levels of species richness and endemism, including those of primates. These forests may contain one of the last populations of the Critically Endangered Preuss’s red colobus monkey (Piliocolobus preussi; PRC), which is found only in southeastern Nigeria and western Cameroon. Gun hunting for bushmeat and habitat loss and degradation from logging and agriculture are the main threats to PRC. The conservation status of PRC and other primates in the Ndokbou forest are largely unknown, with most regional research efforts occurring ...
