Indonesia Forum for the Environments (Walhi) predicted that almost all area in Bali will be collapse on 2015 because of the rapid construction of tourism accommodations which neglect environment preservation.
“It is aggravated by the excessive amount use of water in the Southern area,” Deputy Director of Walhi Bali Suriadi Darmoko stated in Denpasar.
The attitude of Badung Regency Government that doesn’t protect the forest area as a water absorption even worsen this condition.
On the other hand, Badung Regency has the biggest amount of net regional income compare to other regencies in Bali.
“We need to make moratorium on hotel construction. Because so far the construction was centered on the Southern area,” he said.
According to him, besides, we have to do a guided study on tourism master plan in Bali.
The study aims to know whether or not the Island of Gods still needs any new hotel construction.
“The Island may only need the arrangement of tourist accommodation so that it will be clear to which area it should be directed,” he said.
He instructed that the development of tourism should be directed to its quality, not to the quantity.
