Karangsari Urban Village is one of the slum areas recognized in Tuban Regency in 2016. This is because Karangsari Village has a variety of environmental problems, including the highest building irregularity of any village at 300 units per hectare, particularly in areas bordering the beach; the habit of discarding garbage in the sea; and inadequate facilities for washing and toilets (Plan for Settlement of the Karangsari Urban Village Settlement Environment, 2018). As a result, changes were made to the region in 2018, transforming it from light slums to non-slums. However, it is well established from existing study that Karangsari Urban Village is unsustainable in terms of natural capital, physical capital, human capital, economic capital, and social capital. This study defines a set of sustainable livelihoods criteria to ensure that individuals achieve their basic requirements without compromising future generations. The analysis is quantitative, and the fishbone diagram is used to illustrate it. The research produced a set of criteria that must be completed in order for communities, leaders, and government to collaborate on developing sustainable livelihoods that are suited for village conditions.
