Regional Resource Evaluation and Rural Development Transformation
Rural village development is a major concern of the Indonesian government, and it has grown rapidly in the last decade. One of the key questions surrounding this development is the extent to which Indonesia's rural development process is capable of reducing poverty in rural areas. Kamaludin's research in this journal looks at the relationship between development patterns and poverty. This demonstrates that when the dominant agriculture-based villages are adequately equipped or have transformed into the service and other sectors, the strongest correlation to the decline in the number of poor people in rural areas occurs. Meanwhile, the shift to the trade sector demonstrates that its impact on the poor population remains minimal. The transportation and industrial sectors are not shown to be effective in reducing poverty.
