M. Aulia Rachman, Syamsuddin Syamsuddin


Economic empowerment becomes an important aspect of economic development by summarizing social and economic values. This concept provides new activities for development, which are "social participation, productivity, empowering, and sustainable". The role of empowerment is also an effort to foster participation and independence to provide an impact on the individual, group, institutional and community level to have much better welfare. Governments and NGOs have an important role as stakeholders in enhancing empowerment, especially for the poor and disadvantaged areas. To support the potential and equity of empowerment, it needs an inherent form between institutions and NGOs in the program. In writing this paper will provide an overview of the empowerment program initiated by NGOs or government and provide the idea of synergy between institutions to maximize the expected output. The purpose of writing this paper is to be able to see the potential and development of economic empowerment implemented by institutions and NGOs, and provide strategies to establish synergies between institutions and government institutions.
