Shifts and Challenges of Communication for Sustainable Development in Indonesia

Chapter
Part of the Communication, Culture and Change in Asia book series (CCCA, volume 6)

Abstract

The development of Indonesia during the last 40 years lacks sustainability. Indonesia bores the brunt of unsustainable agricultural development during the early 20 years of the New Order along with sociopolitical and economic factors that contributed to unsustainable development. The failures of the sustainability of development are not only linked to those factors alone, but also to the “approaches of communication applied for sustainable development.” The chapter critically analyzes and maps communication approaches applied in sustainable development of Indonesia during the New Order and Reformasi. It also seeks to map the shifts of communication approaches in sustainability of development in two political eras of Indonesia using the concept of mechanistic and organic approaches. Communication for sustainable development of Reformasi Indonesia has yet to give full attention to the performing “organic” aspect of communication especially the empowerment potential of dialogues and participation of the people that are already facilitated through several programs.
