Desa merupakan salah satu komponen penting dalam kehidupan bernegara khususnya di Indonesia. Di era otonomi daerah pemerintah pusat mencoba memberikan kewenangan kepada daerah untuk mengelola potensi daerahnya. Namun, realitas berkata lain, karena ternyata banyak ditemukan berbagai kasus di mana pembangunan desa kerap tidak maksimal. Hal ini dikarenakan berbagai kendala yang ada seperti masih tersentralisasinya pembangunan infrastruktur desa, aparatur pemerintah daerah yang kurang menguasai kewenangannya dan kondisi di lapangan, serta adanya desa-desa terpencil yang tingkat pendidikan dan kesejahteraan masyarakatnya masih rendah. Artikel ini mengurai arti penting desa di era desentralisasi serta pentingnya kehadiran undang-undang spesifik yang mengatur mengenai desa dan pengelolaan dana desa sehingga desa ke depan diharapkan dapat berkembang secara maksimal bagi kesejahteraan rakyat.

Kata kunci:  karakteristik desa, peran desa, pembangunan desa
