Abstract

This study aims to analyze the effectiveness of the institutional capacity development program of women's groups in the coastal area of Sanrobone District of Takalar Regency and possible factors that influence achievement of the program. The research approach used is qualitative approach with in-depth interview data collection and focus group discussion (FGD). In-depth interviews are used to reveal the effectiveness of programs that have been provided to women's groups and their constraints. While FGD is used to collect information on issues related to the effectiveness of the women's capacity building program to further serve as a basis in providing input to related parties so that programs can be made effective. The results show that a number of capacity building programs that have been provided to coastal women's groups, both from government, banking, and the private sector, have in fact not had a significant effect on the welfare of coastal women. In terms of skills, capacity building programs have been effective in improving the ability of women in the group to process seaweed into various types of processed foods. However, in terms of institutions, women's groups have not been well developed due to several issues: related to group management issues, capital and marketing issues.
