The dos and the don'ts : environmental management - general considerations, site screening, construction site, management, roads, water supply, sanitation, solid waste management, markets, and rivers (English)

Environment is all about living and extinct things on earth. The surrounding environment condition is very much influencing our life pattern. A clean and well maintained environment will make us feel comfortable in doing a lot of activities. Conversely, a bad environment condition will cause a lot of problems, such as, disturbance of ecosystem, the lacking of or even the loss of natural resources, and moreover which is also important, it may influence our health. Recently, we regularly have been faced with issues on activities where it potentially causes environment damages or disturbances, such as, illegal deforestation, forest burning, the coral usage for village road construction, improper domestic/factory waste disposal, and also without exception, dirty public places. If these activities were not immediately stopped, it may cause damages to our environment ecosystem. And if our ecosystem is damaged, our lives on earth will also fall to pieces. Therefore, it needs efforts, at least, to minimize the environment damages through the proper environmental management. These efforts can be the form of among others; forest rehabilitation, restriction to disposal waste into location that potentially may harm the environment, or also in the form of the delivery of awareness to the society of the danger that may threaten their viability. This book is drafted to help to deliver the awareness especially to the public society on things that may potentially cause the environment disturbances and damages. This book is simply and clearly presented, by showing good and bad samples were generally may be seen in our surroundings.
