Abstract

Poverty is a crucial problem faced by many countries including Indonesia. Various efforts were made by the government to alleviate poverty, and various programs were launched to address them, both micro and macro. Some programs are successful and effective, but others are unsuccessful and ineffective. One strategy has been designed as an alternative to alleviating poverty in the city of Lhokseumawe-Indonesia. This strategy is built on four main pillars: (1) creating employment opportunities, (2) community empowerment, (3) capacity building, and (4) social protection. This strategy in its implementation can be integrated with creative economic models built to increase people's income and reduce poverty. The creative economy model that is designed basically consists of 4 stages: (1) Determination of vision and mission of creative economy, (2) Problem identification, (3) Application of The Triple Helix concept, and (4) Identification of performance indicators. This model is expected to be a mainstay for the city of Lhokseumawe in order to improve the welfare of the community through efforts to reduce poverty and the development of creative economy.
