Nafiah Ariyani, Farhat Umar


Tourism represents a complex multi-actor system. The successful sustainable development of tourism areas requires all stakeholders’ support and a map of the strengths, the relations, and the interests of stakeholder actors to determine appropriate institutional policies. This study aims to map stakeholders’ character at the Kedung Ombo tourism area development as a favorite potential destination in Central Java, Indonesia. Data collection used the focused group discussions method. The data analysis used was the Mactor method. This research shows that the Pemalijuana River Flow Management Office, the Indonesian State Forest Company, and the Regional Development Planning Agency were the dominant actors. The Department of Youth, Sports and Tourism, College, village government, the youth organization, and business people are relay actors. College is an autonomous actor; meanwhile, the youth organization, local government, and community are actor-dependent. The Regional Development Planning Agency Department of Youth, Sports and Tourism, college, village government, youth organizations, and business people are convergent actors who can build strong alliances. The support of BBWS Pemali Juana and Perhutani to collaborate is needed to succeed. The research findings are the basis for making a participative institutional design for the Kedung Ombo tourist area’s success and sustainability.
