Abstract

The management and development of Mbalong Kawuk Tourism are one of the efforts to improve the economy, society, and environment in Sumberejo Kulon village. Studies are needed for management strategy preparation so the results can be accounted for, measurable, and can be evaluated correctly. The analytical approach used to assess the tourism sustainability of Mbalong Kawuk is multi-dimensional scaling (MDS) analysis with the RALED (Rapid Assessment for Local Economic Development) approach. Data were collected by observation, interviews, and distributing questionnaires. The results showed that Mbalong Kawuk Tourism has a sustainability index, on average, of 86.17 which means it is in the “Very Good” category". However, from the 6 dimensions analyzed, the Target Group dimension is included in the “Less Sustainable” category, so it is recommended for Mbalong Kawuk Tourism Stakeholders to reform tourism management and rearrange the target group.
