Basedon the mandate of the Minister of Home Affairs Regulation Number 42 of
2010 concerning the Establishment of a Provincial and Regency/City Poverty Reduction Coordination Team, the Aceh Government has formed a Poverty Reduction Acceleration Coordination Teamas a cross-stakeholder forum in alleviating poverty in Aceh Province. However, the existence of the team has not been able to achieve the goal of its formation, namely to reduce poverty in the Aceh Province. This is evidenced through the publication of the Central Statistics Agency that in recent years the poverty rate in Aceh Province has never experienced a significant decline. The purpose of this study is to find out the implementation of poverty reduction in Aceh Province by the Coordination Team for the Acceleration of Poverty Reduction in a collaborative governance approach and its obstacles.This study uses Ansell and Gash's collaborative governance theory, namely starting conditions, institutional design, facilitative leadership, collaboration processes,and outcomes. The method used is qualitative. The results show that the principles of collaborative governance in poverty reduction collaboration in Aceh have not been implemented properly, this is marked by an imbalance of authority in the collaboration process because it is still dominated by the government, and there is no innovative policy from the Governor of Aceh as a leader to facilitate and control the implementation overall collaboration. Through the entire collaboration process, the resulting outcomes are the implementation of poverty reduction based on Integrated Social Welfare Data (DTKS) as well as multi-stakeholder participation in a poverty reduction program. The obstacles found were the absence of updating the Integrated Social WelfareData (DTKS) and the low synergy between governments in the implementation of poverty reduction. Therefore, it is hoped that there will be active steps from the Governor of Aceh as the leader to make innovative policies related to the involvement of external government parties from the beginning to the end of the collaboration process, in addition to the need for policies related to full control of performance between government agencies.The Aceh government is also expected to facilitate the development ofthe REGSOSEK program and create a special team for updating data on the poor in Aceh Province.
