Public Participation in the Development of Leading Sector of Agriculture and Fisheries in Pangkep Regency

Nuryanti Mustari, Lukman Hakim


There are still many leading sectors that are not well managed by local governments. In fact, they can contribute to the economic growth and the improvement of the well-being of the communities. They resulted in the low income derived from an area. Dependence of local governments to the central government is getting higher in managing area income and expenditure estimate. Therefore, this research seeks to observe this issue specifically. The problem is to what extent public participation helps the success of each program development for the potential of the region, especially in the agricultural and fisheries sectors. This research used a descriptive qualitative method. The qualitative approach using observation and in-depth interviews are used to obtain valid data and information. It is intended to explain comprehensively about community participation in developing leading sector sources owned by regions. The results showed that the public is less involved in the excavation of the notion in developing the potential of the regions. Maintenance and management of plantation commodity have been carried out maximally. However, it is often constrained by marketing the commodity because the public assume that they are less given the space to be able to market the results of such natural resources properly.
