Community Based Tourism, Tourism Village, Stakeholder


The community took the initiative to develop a tourism village based on nature, society, and culture. This study aims to determine the role of stakeholders and the benefits felt by the community. A case study research has been conducted in the tourist village of Kelor in Sleman, Yogyakarta. Data collection techniques used in-depth interviews and focus group discussions involving all stakeholders and the surrounding community. The results of this study indicate that the tourist village is managed by a management team appointed by deliberation. The government provides training and assistance in the management of tourist villages. The company is also involved in CSR activities. Meanwhile, universities also provide assistance in developing tourism villages. The community feels the economic benefits of the tourist village in the form of employment and additional family income.
