Abstract
This paper examines the gap between seeming progressive public demand for
cleaner environment and lagging policy responses of the government. Public
attitude toward environmental protection has been analyzed along with four different
categories of environmental conflict and problems. There are diverse
inconsistency and discrepancy between public attitudes and their behaviors. Key
policy outputs are reviewed with special emphasis on environmental investment.
Several factors that may explain the passive and conservative government move
toward environmental proteaion have been identified. Those include, inactive
public pressure on the government and the industry, ineffective mechanism for
transforming people's demand into government decision, the ideology of developmentalism
in the policymaking circle, weak local politics and administration,
and oligopolitic industrial structure.
