Poverty is a complex challenge that requires a structured and holistic approach in overcoming it. This research aims to explore and analyze strategic planning in poverty alleviation efforts in Tasikmalaya City. This research uses a qualitative approach with a case study method. The results of the research show that the implementation of strategic planning for poverty alleviation in Tasikmalaya City through the formation of a regional Poverty Alleviation Coordination Team (TKPK) and Regional Poverty Alleviation Regulation number 3 of 2022 has not achieved the expected effectiveness. Even though administration meets central and regional government requirements, the substance of strategic planning still has little influence on the implementation of poverty reduction activities. Supporting factors involve national coordination, government policy, community entrepreneurship, and community involvement and the role of religion. Meanwhile, inhibiting factors include less dynamic leadership, lack of influence of mission and vision, less relevant research, and minimal collaboration and innovation diffusion capabilities. These results illustrate an expanded understanding of the complexity of poverty reduction strategies in the City of Tasikmalaya, with special attention to organizational aspects, the complexity of poverty problems, and local contexts that differentiate them from the general theoretical framework.
