Harihanto | Sukapti


Abstract: The research was conducted in East Borneo Province by assessing AMDAL documents made in 2009 - 2020. The research is intended as an independent assessment outside the official assessment forum conducted by the Amdal Assessment Commission (KPA) Technical Team. The assessment was conducted by comparing the writing technique of 101 AMDAL documents against the rules of scientific writing and Indonesian, because AMDAL is a scientific document. The results showed that the quality of AMDAL document writing techniques was still low. At least 22 types of writing errors were found. Document writing is far from a correct and good rule of Indonesian; similarly viewed from the rules of writing scientific documentst. As a result of the many errors, the contents of the AMDAL document in question are feared cannot be fully understood by the public. Even by the initiator of the project though, because the AMDAL document is usually made by a consultant, unless the initiator of the project in question asks for an explanation to the consultant. Furthermore, the environmental management and monitoring plan in the AMDAL document cannot be fully implemented by the initiators of the project.
