Abstract: This paper assesses the environmental performance of land-based economic sectors of Central Java, Indonesia. An assessment framework is designed and applied to two Districts: Banyumas and Purbalingga. It consists of two main elements, namely: (a) an assessment between the medium term development plans of the two districts in terms of their consistency with green economy ideas and (b) an assessment of the transformation phase (from research to the real green investment) that has been achieved by each district. Results show that development actors in the regions have a strong aspiration for 'welfare and justice' as the ultimate goal of development. However, their visions overlook one of the main objectives of the green economy, which is associated to the notion of 'environmental protection and climate stabilisation'. This assessment also suggests that research and advocacy have been limited which may prevent effective transformation towards a green economy in both districts. Finally, some forms of research and advocacy on green economy are proposed.
