Abstract

In responding to technological developments and the use of the internet in villages, the Government through the Ministry of Villages, Development of Disadvantaged Regions, and Transmigration (MoV), in collaboration with the World Bank designed a program called Smart Villages. This study uses a qualitative approach with inductive thematic analysis. Data are collected from series of focus group discussion. The result of this study is Smart Village Action Plan mentioning the roles of stakeholders including (1) Ministries/Agencies to support infrastructure, applications integration, and human resource capacity building (2) private sectors to facilitate infrastructure and empower village communities (3) NGOs assist village institutions, village officials and community groups to improve the decision-making process. Thus, the collaboration in developing the Smart Village model in Indonesia is expected to be able to accelerate economic transformation and rural development in Indonesia.
