Manfaat Pembatasan BBM Versi Pemerintah

Sumber : WartaNews – 30 Januari 2012

Pemerintah telah mengemukakan manfaat kebijakannya dalam melakukan pengendalian atau pembatasan konsumsi BBM bersubsidi mulai 1 April mendatang.

Hal tersebut pernah diungkapkan Dirjen Migas Kementerian ESDM Evita H. Legowo dalam Rapat Kerja dengan Komisi VII DPR, beberapa waktu lalu.

Kebijakan pemerintah itu diklaim bermanfaat dalam meningkatkan ketahanan energi, pengurangan penggunaan BBM dan peningkatan diversifikasi energi.

Selain itu, juga mendukung program langit biru dan pengurangan emisi gas rumah kaca dan penghematan volume BBM bersubsidi untuk tahun 2012 diperkirakan sebesar 2,5 juta kiloliter (KL) dari kuota volume APBN sebesar 40 juta KL. Sehingga penghematannya dapat direalokasikan untuk belanja infrastruktur energi, sarana dan prasarana angkutan umum, anggaran pendidikan cadangan resiko fiskal.

Terkait pembatasan konsumsi BBM subsidi tersebut, Pemerintah telah mengubah Perpres No 55 tahun 2005 jo Perpres No 9 tahun 2006 dan segera menyusun rancangan Perpres untuk diversifikasi BBM ke bahan bakar gas (BBG).

Selain mempersiapkan infrastruktur untuk penjualan BBM non subsidi Jawa-Bali. Pemerintah juga akan menyiapkan jalur khusus untuk penjualan BBM non subsidi serta meningkatkan infrastruktur bahan bakar gas bagi transportasi.

Rencananya, pada tahun 2012 akan dibangun 54 SPBG CNG dan 108 SPBG LGV di Jawa-Bali. Pembangunannya akan dilakukan secara bertahap dan dalam jumlah banyak mulai dilakukan September mendatang.

Bahkan untuk mendorong penggunaan bahan bakar gas agar lebih cepat, pemerintah berencana memberikan bantuan converter kit kepada kendaraan umum secara gratis dan untuk dibagikan secara bertahap. (*/mako

Indonesia Signals Intent to Conserve Borneo’s “Lungs of the World”

Source : WWF – 26 January 2012

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono signed a decree on Jan 5 authorising conservation of at least 45 percent of its share of the island of Borneo, known as Kalimantan.

The decree covers a massive area of more than 250,000 km2 encompassing vast tracts of rainforest in the Heart of Borneo and landscapes beyond.

“At least 45 percent of Indonesian Borneo will serve as the lungs of the world… with the plan ensuring that local ecosystems are protected and the biodiversity of the island is allowed to flourish,” a presidential press release said. 


Indonesia is rated as the world’s third-worst emitter of greenhouse gases with emissions mainly due to deforestation caused by expanding palm oil, timber and pulp & paper industries.

“We hope with the decree, Indonesia will be able to meet its target of reducing gas emissions by 26 percent by 2020,” forestry ministry secretary general, Hadi Daryanto, told the international media.

The regulation looks to promote the sustainable use of the island’s resources while ensuring an ambitious network of conservation areas are linked together by a series of “ecosystem corridors”. In addition, existing protected areas are to be strengthened and degraded areas rehabilitated.

A new measure of capital?



The Presidential press release also noted that Kalimantan would become a center for plantations of palm oil, rubber and other sustainable forest products, an issue which has raised concerns amongst some international organizations.



Adam Tomasek, head of the WWF’s Heart of Borneo Initiative, believes the new decree offers a fantastic opportunity to secure the future of Borneo as a place where sustainable development exists in balance with a practical and beneficial conservation regime. However, the targets set out in the regulation will not be met unless the values of ecosystems and biodiversity, or ‘natural capital’, become key features of future economic development planning.

“WWF has been working for a long time with both National and local governments to develop spatial plans, and engage businesses and communities to drive conservation and sustainable development in Borneo. The decree is a leadership statement from the President of Indonesia that will help ensure the previous commitments on the Heart of Borneo will be met,” Mr Tomasek said.
