Accelerating development through the granting of special rights and special autonomy to the Papua region is one of the steps taken by the central government of Indonesia to embrace the indigenous people of Papua. Such an approach is a wise choice to deal with the current situation in Papua. All indigenous people of Papua must feel the benefits of abundant natural resources. Equality is an important key to development leading to the well-being of Papuans. This approach can be called the welfare approach. The indigenous people of Papua are introduced to practical concepts that will accelerate development and enable them to experience an increase in their standard of living in all areas to achieve prosperity.

The government’s approach to prosperity is reflected in the belief that Papuans can achieve prosperity by working together and managing what they have. A balance between responsibilities and rights will ultimately lead to prosperity. A commitment to managing available natural resources, including their sustainability, will create sustainable development. This obligation also stems from the status of the indigenous people of Papua as indigenous people, the diversity of cultures associated with and related to them. A right to be earned is well-being itself. Papua’s income will increase because it has a lot of natural resources. The right to live and support indigenous peoples’ preferences, including traditional land rights, is also guaranteed in the special autonomy granted by the central government to the Papuan regional government. Native Papuans perceive and receive prosperity that is balanced between responsibilities and rights.

In Papua, indigenous peoples are also responsible for the equitable distribution of the results of natural resource management. The regional governments of Papua in the various provinces that were created together with the New Autonomous Region need to make administrative use of the existing potential, especially the natural potential, to then develop development plans with systems that are sustainable and whose benefits are considered. everyone. at the community level. This means that the welfare approach also focuses on sustainable community empowerment. The nature that gave them life is also alive. Sustainable development means that natural opportunities will continue to exist and can be passed on to future generations.

A welfare approach that includes sustainable development and equitable distribution of resource management outcomes will remove local Papuan skepticism about stakeholder consensus. A separate independent government implemented in the Papua region will also operate under the mandate of the Act. The hopes of local Papuans to prosper will be realized. The role of government is also made easier because the welfare approach ensures community participation, which is fully supported by policies that help achieve welfare levels.
