Abstract

Purpose – This study aims to analyze the government's priority efforts in preventing future fires and to analyze regulations that do not take side on sustainable environmental development with case studies of forest burning in Indonesia.
Design/methodology/approach – Secondary data were collected and then qualitative approach was used to analyze the model.
Findings - The establishment of regulations in resolving forest and land fires was carried out after the occurrence of forest fires. The absence of synchronous regulations creates legal uncertainty which raises multi-interpretations, especially for law enforcement officials. The absence of synchronization of regulations vertically and horizontally makes regulatory products contradictory and triggers new problems in the community requiring revisions to regulations in the field of land and forest fires.
Practical implications - The method used by the government in this case is by using the first paradigm, namely the law serves the needs of society. The regulation of forest fire prevention has fulfilled the indicators of law as a tool of social engineering theory starting with social fulfilment, law in action, law with broad discretion with a goal: social development.
Originality/value – The study is the first to observed the regulation of forest fire prevention has fulfilled the indicators of law as a tool of social engineering theory starting with social fulfilment, law in action, law with broad discretion with a goal: social development.
