- This study aims to analyze the implementation of the Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) and the empowerment of human resources employing the Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) approach. This study provides input to local governments in regards to accelerating the achievement of SDGs as well as harmonizing them with government regulations and programs of community empowerment. The research method was conducted through observations on community organizations related to poverty alleviation policies and the implementation of SDGs in the local government. The research was conducted by interviewing, distributing questionnaires, and having Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) with the members of community organizations performing program activities related to SDGs’ achievements. The data were analyzed using a descriptive qualitative method by combining frequency analysis to obtain an understanding of the questionnaire’s responses. The results of this study indicate that some of the goals listed in SDGs’ documents have been achieved successfully; in terms of sustainable economic development, however, they are still not optimal. This encourages regional governments to put more effort into achieving economic equality for the lower classes of society.
