Government of Indonesia has adopted various National Laws regarding Waste Management, Coastal Areas and Small Island Managenment, Tourism, including those related to the Ocean itself as well as the Local Governments as the principal Authorities.
In order to cope with the problem, the Indonesian government has setup the National Plan of Action on Combating Marine Plastic Debris to minimize the impact of marine debris. The government regulates the action plan at the sub national level, national, international and even regional, as well as through the research and development community. Thus, reduction of inland plastic waste reaching the ocean should be within reach.
