Likewise, in the event that the government is proven to have taken actions that are not in line with the provisions of the law on environmental protection and management, they can be held legally liable. This study is qualified as empirical legal research, with the application of several types of approaches, such as a field-based approach, a statutory approach, a conceptual approach, a comparative approach, a case approach, and a cultural approach based on local community wisdom. The results of the study show that environmental management is an effort to carry out responsibilities that are massively difficult, resulting in a decrease in the quality of the environment that is becoming increasingly real.

However, in a context like Bali, regulations integrating the values ​​that develop in society in protecting and preserving the environment are an ideal form to protect and manage the environment in a rational way to realize sustainable tourism development.
