This book deals with questions concerning the regulation of disasters, climate change and environmental harm in developing countries, focusing on the particular case of Indonesia and addressing regulatory problems from a multidisciplinary perspective. The contributing authors deal with issues of globalization and especially the question of how globalization affects environmental harm - for example, examining how climate change is regulated in developing countries. Particular attention is paid to the programme for reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) and to the effectiveness of the clean development mechanism. Specific focus is also given to the regulation of disasters and the question of how victims of disasters can be compensated. The book considers issues of decision-making and public participation in decisions with respect to environmentally hazardous activities and finally, attention is also paid to the question of how indigenous knowledge and 'local wisdom' can be incorporated in environmental decision making in developing countries. Important conclusions are drawn about how reliable institutions and instruments can be developed to guarantee decision-making which reduces the risks emerging from environmental degradation, climate change or disasters in that public interest. Recommendations are formulated to take into account the specific challenges and problems that developing countries are facing when proposing particular instruments or institutions. Providing a multidisciplinary perspective, this book will appeal to environmental lawyers, environmental policy makers, civil servants with competence for disasters, environmental decision making or climate change, and environmental economists.
