World War has produced many negative effects. Environmental pollution is one of the negative effects of world war. Pollution in the world is increasingly alarming. On this basis, the United Nations conducted an environmental conference in June 1972 in Stockholm, Sweden. The Stockholm Conference is considered the highest peak of environmental awareness at the international level. The Stockholm Conference produced an environmental legal concept called suitanable development. The results of the Stockholm conference underwent follow-up and obliged the conference participant countries to ratify it. Indonesia fulfilled this obligation by establishing Law No. 4 of 1982 concerning the basic provisions of environmental management.
