Number of vehicles in this region has been increasing year by year in accordance with the economic and population growth in the last 5 years. Number of registered vehicles in 2002 was 234,295 (4 wheels) and 558, 236 (2 wheels). Air quality monitoring results averaged "moderate", PM10 = 75,32 Ug/m3, SO2 = 54.12 Ug/m3, CO = 3.89 Ug/m3, O3 = 76.85 Ug/m3 dan NO2 = 39.59 Ug/m3. Developmentally, Medan City experiences problems with transportation, air pollution, traffic congestion, vehicular growth, etc. Accordingly, Medan needs a framework for planning an integrated transportation system. The program will result in a range of local economic, social and environmental benefits (e.g., reduce GHG emissions).

Background:

Air quality of Medan City averaged "moderate", PM10 = 75.32 Ug/m3, SO2 = 54.12 Ug/m3, CO = 3.89 Ug/m3, O3 = 76.85 Ug/m3 dan NO2 = 39,59 Ug/m3. Based on result of air quality monitoring system (AQMS) of Medan City, air quality went down. Local government found it necessary to generate public awareness (topics: Environmental Impact Assesment, Environmental Management System, Environmental Law and Enforcement, Cleaner Fuels and Blue Sky Programs). Last time, the Local Government of Medan organized some activities to improve public awareness, i.e., public communication about Blue Sky Programs and Air Quality Management System. Stakeholders were interested in these programs to raise public awareness, and to participate in Clean Air Programs. The problem is limited budget and communication among stakeholders. Next time, local government will intensify its efforts to provide direct communication and public awareness raising for stakeholders.

Aims of the practice

  • control emisions from stationary sources
  • promote use of cleaner fuels and best available and enviromental technologies
  • enhance evironmental responsibility and ownership
  • enhance environmental quality

Outline (How was it done?)

  • Socialization enhance awareness, participation and community character active of public about environmental
  • Physical Land Use Planning and Zoning
  • Capping and Fuels Efficiency
  • Energy Conservation
  • Monitoring Air Quality
  • Cleaner Fuels
  • Legislation and Enforcement
  • Public Awareness and Ownership

Stakeholders

  • Local Government (health agency, district government section, environmental agency, etc.)
  • NGO
  • University
  • Pertamina/Gasoline Enterprises

Evaluation: The program was not sustainable and not yet effective because of limited budget. However, the program is very important, and must be continued in the future.
