Discrepance Dynamics on Ecotourism Development in Sembilang National Parks, Indonesia
In line with the shifting principle of forestry development from timber management to resourced based management, it can be said that the current orientation of Indonesian forestry development is on the right path. On the other hand, the dynamics of discrepancy among actors in ecotourism development is a fundamental obstacle that always brings discontinuation of a program in the long run. This study used analysis of One Score One Indicator Scoring System, which aimed to minimize subjectivity and simplify the various components of statements and/ or questions arranged in the form of questionnaires; which was then analyzed descriptively and qualitatively as material for consideration to achieve optimum results. Overall, the results of the study showed that there was a discrepancy between society and the government in ecotourism development; both in the large domains of economics, ecology and socio-culture. Although there were symptoms of polarization, but stakeholders agreed that the benefits distribution of ecotourism development was able to create new employment opportunities, increase community income or increase value, and develop various recolection demands. For these reasons, the orientation of a partial development should be encouraged and directed to be a strong motivation in realizing various forms of ecotourism implementation. The aggressive strategies needed to be done are: 1) Ecotourism Development Planning; 2) Collaboration and Partnership Management.
