RPJMD Description
RPJMD Period 2012-2017
Supportive Mission Statement in RPJMD Mission 1: To improve regional infrastructure in order to support sustainable regional development with target (6) reduction in pollution level, in environmental degradation and disaster risks, goal (7) increased function of protected area in Banten, goal (8) achieved sustainable spatial planning, goal (9) increased availability and use of alternative energy and environmentally friendly renewable energy such as geothermal, wind and solar.
Supportive Policy Direction in RPJMD: Agriculture and Forestry Strategy: Increase participation of rural community in protecting forest estates through rehabilitation and conservation of natural resources and the environment; Rehabilitation and conservation of natural resources and of the environment through Critical Land Rehabilitation Movement (Gerakan Rehabilitasi Lahan Kritis); Increased management of protection areas(Kawasan Lindung). Policy Direction: Increased participation of rural communities in protecting forest estates and urban forests areas as green open space; Rehabilitation of mangroves and coral reefs; Rehabilitation of degraded land through Critical Land Rehabilitation Movement; Achieved restoration of post mining land degradation, of landfill, and of natural disasters; Achieved planning and restoration of the function of protected areas; Increased security and protection of protected areas; Development of new protected areas.
Supportive Policy Direction in RPJMD: Energy, Transport, and Industry

Strategy: Increased use of renewable energy and energy conservation.

Policy direction: Increased utilization of geothermal energy as a source of electrical energy in Banten, by facilitating the development of geothermal energy resources; Reduced load of emissions from motorized vehicles and industry sector; Development of cleaner production and EPCM (Environmental Pollution Control Manager); Increased efforts to implement energy conservation and saving, through conservation of petroleum to gas and other energy sources; Increased use of alternative energy sources through the development of micro-hydro electric energy in Pandeglang and Lebak; Development of energy sources from solar, wind and biogas in rural areas not yet reached by the electrical grid system, and Development of renewable energy independent villages; Increased community empowerment in sustainable energy development.

Supportive Policy Direction in RPJMD: Waste

Strategy: Increase coverage of urban solid waste services.

Policy direction: Increased coverage of domestic waste water services; Increased coverage of solid waste services in the National Activity Center (Pusat Kegiatan Nasional)and Development Areas(Wilayah Kerja Pembangunan)through, Construction of Waste Processing Sites(Tempat Pemprosesan dan Pengolahan Sampah), Reduction of waste at source and development of technology use of waste; Achieved monitoring of hazardous waste utilization and disposal in industry, hospitals, domestic use and other sectors.
