Abstract

This study aims to map poverty in the Indonesia-Malaysia border region in Kepulauan Riau. The existing policies in handling socio-cultural problems in border communities, including poverty, still do not touch isolated communities such as in remote rural areas inland and remote island areas of the country's borders. This reality is essential to be associated with sustainable development, which has been the jargon of national development, including poverty, alleviation, and zero poverty. The method used in the research is qualitatively descriptive. We collect field data through interviews and examination of secondary data publications from government agencies. This research indicates that poverty in the Indonesia-Malaysia border region in Kepulauan Riau is still occurring and structural. Sustainable development has been the jargon of national development, including poverty, alleviation and zero poverty.
