The legal policy engineering in the field of environment starts from the interaction between social change and legal change which raises two paradigms, namely the law serves the needs of society and the law creates social change.These two paradigms give influence to the handling of legal cases in the environmental field. The purpose of this study is 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. The research findings show that the establishment of regulations in resolving forest and land fires was carried out after the occurrence of forest fires. 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. Regulation of Act Number 32 of 2009 and Act No. 18 of 2004 do not synchronize vertically and horizontally with the Environmental Minister Regulation No. 10 of 2010 and Central Kalimantan Governor Regulation Number 15 of 2010.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.
