The Impact of Accelerated Development on Air Pollution in Indonesia

Faradiba Faradiba


Development is the result achieved from sustainable government policy efforts. The government is responsible for planning and implementing policies to increase people's welfare and improve infrastructure and the economic sector. Instead of producing the expected positive impacts, development often has adverse side effects for society and the environment. This study aimed to determine the impact of development in rural areas on air pollution. The data used in this research is Village Development Index data for 2018. Apart from that, this research also uses several variables from the 2018 Village Potential data collection results. The method used in this research is the Instrumental Variable (IV) method. The results obtained in this study, namely development in independent villages, still have residuals and have an impact on air pollution. Support is needed from the government through regulations and companies through obedience to pay attention to environmental conditions so that the survival of living things is maintained.
