Andris Amir, Arifin Tahir, Ansar ., Sastro Mustapa Wantu


The purpose of this study is to explain the implementation of EIA policies by Mining Companies in Gorontalo, Indonesia. This study uses a case study research design by conducting participatory observations, in-depth interviews, and documentation on the phenomenon of EIA policy implementation in Gorontalo. The results of the study were analyzed descriptively qualitatively. The results of the study found that the implementation of the EIA policy in Gorontalo was predominantly intervened by the government with a command-and-control approach starting from the process of issuing environmental permits to regular supervision carried out to measure the level of compliance of mining companies in monitoring and handling ecological impacts. However, community participation was only involved in scoping mining activities and assessing EIA documents. In its implementation, mining companies are less open and responsive to the local government and overlapping supervision between provincial and district governments.
