Abstract

Thematic Kampung is a development program initiated by the city government of Semarang, Central Java since 2016. This program aims to alleviate poverty in urban areas by exploring community-based of local resources. The implementation of this program depends on the participation of its community. However, community participation in one thematic kampung may differ to others. Some determinant factors could influence the differences in community participation. This article aims to compare the different forms of community participation in developing thematic kampung in Semarang. Based on that information, we could identify a strategy to improve community participation in developing a more sustainable thematic kampung in Semarang. This study will use a qualitative approach, and the data is collected through observation, in-depth interviews, document analysis, and Focus Group Discussion (FGD). The subject of this study is people from various thematic kampung in Semarang. This study is important and interesting to collect some ideas on the strategy to improve community participation to succeed in the development program.
