Abstract: This study aimed at determining the strategic effect of PNPM-urban consisting of basic and operational strategies on poverty eradication in Makassar. This study used mixed methods. Data collection techniques were documents, interviews and questionnaires. Data analysis techniques were data reduction, data presentation, data verification and conclusion. The results of the study indicate that the basic strategy has a positive and significant impact on poverty eradication. This is due to the PNPM-urban program that provides training to improve human resource capacity in terms of empowerment, partnership and synergy. This program can boost the welfare of the community. The operational strategy has no effect on poverty eradication of PNPM-urban. This is due to the allocation of PNPM-urban funds in Makassar dominated by the environmental program that focuses on physical development while the budget for the economic program is lower than other program.
