Abstract

Policy, program and budget allocated by the Government of Indonesia increase every year, but the number of poverties decrease which is not corresponding with society’s expectation. Interestingly, the biggest poverty occurs in maritime areas. The problem is whether the fisher community on the islands could access fast changing and entering Super Smart Society era or Society 5.0 that is an era that makes people live better as it is able to integrate digital development (cyberspace) with real physical space. This study aims to picture poverty of Indonesia maritime society phenomena in Society 5.0 era with a case study. The data used are primary and secondary data. The results of this study is that Indonesian maritime communities are still experiencing difficulties in the transitional era of Community 5.0, including: (1) the social structure that has been shackling has left people on the poor island and unable to escape from poverty trap; (2) Relatively low level of education resulting in difficulty to find alternative, more decent jobs; (3) Access to information on development, is still very limited, and; (4) Lack of awareness to change and accept a better and more decent life
