Editorial: The green economy for sustainable development in Indonesia - The challenges and opportunities of a multidisciplinary approach

In this editorial we summarise and comment on papers on the general theme of the implementation of a Green Economy from an Indonesian perspective. We address the issue of the green economy and sustainable development in Indonesia which is one of the most dynamic countries in Southeast Asia (ASEAN). We have therefore compiled this special issue of the International Journal of Green Economics, to include seven papers, all of which use multidisciplinary approaches, the method which forms the bedrock of a Green Economics analysis. The papers build on the particular analysis found in the Green Economics Institute's Book, The Greening of Asia and China, which highlighted how (contrary to much of the economic literature) a green economics approach actually enhances, rather than slows down, economic development. Using the Green Economics Model, it illustrates a new perspective for understanding the contemporary and rapid Asian economic development as the new powerhouse of the entire global economy. The important elements of this process which this current volume here examines as constituent parts of this process include disaster recovery, environmental education, environmental urban planning, and environmental engineering. Additionally, in this special issue, we analyse the Indonesian experience, which has tried to adopt and to adapt to, a green economy model and to use it to drive the evolving economy. We explore some of the challenges and opportunities in this novel process.

Abstract

In this editorial we summarise and comment on papers on the general theme of the implementation of a Green Economy from an Indonesian perspective. We address the issue of the green economy and sustainable development in Indonesia which is one of the most dynamic countries in Southeast Asia (ASEAN). We have therefore compiled this special issue of the International Journal of Green Economics, to include seven papers, all of which use multidisciplinary approaches, the method which forms the bedrock of a Green Economics analysis. The papers build on the particular analysis found in the Green Economics Institute's Book, The Greening of Asia and China, which highlighted how (contrary to much of the economic literature) a green economics approach actually enhances, rather than slows down, economic development. Using the Green Economics Model, it illustrates a new perspective for understanding the contemporary and rapid Asian economic development as the new powerhouse of the entire global economy. The important elements of this process which this current volume here examines as constituent parts of this process include disaster recovery, environmental education, environmental urban planning, and environmental engineering. Additionally, in this special issue, we analyse the Indonesian experience, which has tried to adopt and to adapt to, a green economy model and to use it to drive the evolving economy. We explore some of the challenges and opportunities in this novel process.
