Abstract

While earth system governance can be understood as a political project that engages more and more actors who seek to strengthen the current architecture of institutions and networks at local and global levels, call for participation has emerged in the last two decades as one of the most important topics in development policy and theory debates. While natural disaster comes over, good governance is a prerequisite to elevating disaster reduction on the earth system management need to highlight on the importance of political commitment, multi stakeholder participation, and financial resources to achieve good governance in disaster risk reduction, and presented voluntary targets for governments. In fact, the policy-making in any area is not merely a question of ‘rationally’ choosing the ‘right’ decisions in a technocratic, value-free manner, but is more fundamentally shaped by contests between competing interests. This essay assesses some of the major premises of neo-institutionalism explanations of earth system governance and participation practices with regard to the recent and ongoing Indonesian experience with many natural disasters, such as earth quake, mud volcano, and Tsunami. Decision making under natural disaster was challenge for good government as a prerequisite to elevating disaster reduction on the earth system management. The need for accountability, coordination among donor agencies, and participatory approaches; and the role of national and regional platforms will become obstacles while decision making needs to be done as soon as possible. There after, environment devastating will be the excuse under the name of emergency. The research tries to find new ways to learn democracy and to live democratically through participatory budget which environmental friendly. What accounts for the ideological and political ambiguity of earth system governance’ activity in promoting democratic process? To what extent are the business institution implicated in environment policies?
