Evidence-Based Policy Making Policy is a policy that is made based on evidence that supports the birth of the policy. Policies that are based on the right evidence will certainly produce policies that are effective and right on target. However, there are still often policies that are not accompanied by an appropriate evidence base.

The formal legal umbrella for the formulation of policies based on proper evidence study does not explicitly exist yet. However, Law Number 12 of 2011 concerning the Formation of Regulations and Regulations regulates the needs of research, both legal and other research, that can be justified scientifically before issuing a regulation. The results of this study are formally stated in the Academic Manuscript.

However, the Academic Paper is only required to exist in a Draft Law, Provincial Draft Regulation, or Draft Regency / City Regional Regulation as a solution to the problems and legal needs of the community. Considering that not all regulations are liable to be preceded by Academic Manuscripts, it is not surprising then that many regulations are not accompanied by legal, philosophical, and historical foundations, including scientific foundations. Many regulations arise with the aim of solving the problem of one thing but then raises other problems. Besides, some regulations are preceded by the formulation of Academic Manuscripts. Still, the existing Academic Manuscripts only meet the formal standards of Law 12 of 2011, not the substance, which is their obligation.

In addition to regulating the obligation to make Academic Manuscript for specific regulations, Chapter XI of Law 12 of 2011 also regulates Public Participation in the formulation of regulations. It is stated that the public has the right to provide input verbally and/or in writing in the Formation of Legislation. Such input can be conveyed through (a) public hearing meetings, (b) work visits, (c) socialization, and/or (d) seminars, workshops, and/or discussions. So, to facilitate this involvement, each draft legislation must be regulated easily accessible to the community.

In fact, it is not uncommon for the community to be involved only at the end of the process and as a formality. Besides, access is often difficult to obtain. Usually, information about the draft regulation only exists on the official website of the regulator. Not all community groups are accustomed to accessing the official website of regulators. In addition, not all draft regulations are available on the official website of the regulator.

How can a policy be said to have a good impact if the policy is not based on accurate data analysis, both from information submitted by the community itself, expert opinions, research results, and information from stakeholders or facts on the ground? The notes form the basis of the Editor's theme, "Evidence-Based Policy Making in the Protection and Management of the Environment."
