Abstract

The Riau Islands Province, characterized by its island geography and rich natural resources, faces geographical challenges and climate change vulnerabilities. This study examines the progress of digital transformation and innovation, focusing on governance and public services changes. This study used qualitative methods with library research techniques. The integration of digital transformation and regional innovation plays a crucial role in improving the quality of life for island communities, developing resources, and creating economic opportunities and prosperity. This is evident in the dynamics of the Digital Competitiveness Index and Regional Innovation Index, which serve as performance indicators for the Provincial Government's commitment to achieving inclusive and sustainable development. The Provincial Government of Riau Islands has made significant efforts in developing digital infrastructure, with several regencies and municipalities receiving Innovative Government Awards for their accomplishments in the border region category. In conclusion, despite various challenges, digital transformation and regional innovation are of great significance for the progress of the Riau Islands Province, particularly when managed collaboratively across sectors, professionally, transparently, accountably, and responsibly for the benefit of the island communities.
