Abstract
A number of strategic issues become the basis for problem-mapping in the framework of policy design and implementation of adaptive development in border areas. In terms of government, concrete steps are required to address the classical issues commonly arising in simultaneous and aggregate manner in order to reach more advanced stage of social conditions in border areas. This study applies a descriptive narrative approach to capture the phenomena, in which the thematic focus data are obtained from various research reports, news, and participant observation in Papua. The data analysis, carried out after data verification, combines content analysis of the data from documents and news and formulates motivating factors for the development of local government in border areas. To accelerate development in border areas, it is necessary to apply government management system with adaptive principles through contextual bureaucratic approach. Accommodation of public needs in border areas has always been the main reference in accomplishing the code of conduct of governance. However, there are still many paradoxical development policies, unfavorable budget politics due to its segmentation into multi-governance, weak support of regional apparatus, weak coaching mechanism, and constrained institutional functions of local government in reaching isolated border areas with limited infrastructure. Bureaucracy in Papua has attempted to answer the issues by revitalizing the functions of government. However, despite having optimized the accommodative content of local characteristics, it is also constrained by limited authority over resource management and financing.
