Results show that people are participating in the resettlement process from the beginning (census) through the accountability presentation. The process of work group formation in Sangkrah and Joyosuran village in Surakarta Municipality is a model of deliberate participation that involves all related political entities (village chief and his/her staff, LPMK, community leaders, and the affected community). They sat together in a forum of dialog (RembugWarga) that facilitates ideas exchange, discussion, and consultation with and among the parties present. The hindrances that affect resettlement program are some part of the community that still refuses the program, the different abilities of each work group, and the limited budget set by the regional government. The attempts made by the work group along with the municipal government of Surakarta focus on persuasive approaches that put people empowerment first. These attempts were made easier by the trust of the community to the resettlement program. The result is 64% resettlement realization in Sangkrah village, and 91% resettlement realization in Joyosuran village during 2012 through 2014.
