On the same occasion, the Director General of Climate Change Control at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), Laksmi Dwanthi, said that this award is a real contribution from the media in increasing literacy to the community, especially in the field of environmental management and protection.
In addition, Laksmi continued, efforts to deal with potential problems of air or water pollution are also very important for all parties. He said the law mandates that everyone has the right to a good and healthy environment. This mandate encourages Indonesia's commitment to realize sustainable and environmentally friendly development.
