Abstract: Poverty is a multidimensional and complex phenomenon. The Covid-19 pandemic outbreak that hit all countries, including Indonesia, has also had an impact on increasing poverty rates. Several city government policies in overcoming poverty, such as cash and non-cash assistance, have not been able to reduce the poverty rate in Denpasar City. Based on data from the Central Statistics Agency in 2022, Bali Province, 2021, there was an increase in the number of poor people, amounting to 201,970 people out of around 4.32 million Bali residents. The number of poor people is said to have increased by around 5,050 people compared to September 2020, which was 196,920 people. The aim of this research is to analyze and describe the poverty reduction policy strategy carried out by the Denpasar City government in responding to this problem by analyzing institutional culture, dynamic capabilities and adaptive policies in the poverty reduction process. The research method is descriptive qualitative. Data collection was carried out through observation, interviews and documentation. Informants were determined using a purposive sampling technique which focused on TKPK members in Denpasar City. The research results show that the implementation of mitigation policy strategies in Denpasar City is running dynamically. From the aspect of institutional culture, the Denpasar City government is supported by the spirit of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam and Sewaka Dharma values. From the capability aspect, human resources are adequate to carry out their duties. From the dynamic policy aspect, the poverty reduction policy strategy is carried out through the one poverty data program, the development of a new paradigm for poverty reduction and the development of digitalization innovations in public services.
