Policies of rural development in Indonesia have evolved over time. It began with the land reform policy implemented in the 1960s, then the Green Revolution was implemented in the 1970s and 1980s, the Backward Village Program was implemented in 1990s, the Kecamatan Development Program was implemented in 2000s, and Social Protection Programs were implemented thereafter. The programs have had positive impacts on rural livelihood , but most of them have not been completely successful. Various implementation gaps can be identified from the programs, which mostly lie in the weak capacity of the bureaucracy to implement the programs, insufficient funding , and the weak management of the poverty database . Therefore, the future of rural development in Indonesia will depend on the government’s capacity to manage the programs, the political commitment of national and local leaders to create pro-rural development budgeting , and support from local institutions through decentralization to improve the targeting of poverty alleviation programs.
