Author(s): Muhammad Aviv Adhitya Putra Pratama, Syarief Makhya, Maulana Mukhlis, Feni Rosalia


Currently, there are instruments developed by the central government, namely fiscal transfers to regions and village funds which actually provide opportunities for regions to be able to solve environmental problems more optimally. However, this concept has not yet provided an optimal contribution to environmental conservation. At the same time, the preservation of biodiversity and the environment is an effort to achieve the SDGs targets in Indonesia, especially in Lampung Province. The purpose of this study is to describe the urgency of the ecological aspect as a consideration for strengthening fiscal transfers to the regions. The research method used is descriptive qualitative by searching for information related to ecological-based fiscal transfer policies. The results of the study indicate the urgency of an ecologically based fiscal transfer policy. First, strengthening the capacity of local governments in preserving ecological functions in an effort to realize sustainable development. Second, supporting the government's strategic program in low- carbon development. Third, improving the welfare of the people living around and within forest areas, who have been marginalized by economic growth-oriented development. Fourth, strengthen the function of fiscal policy and governance that is oriented towards environmental preservation.
