Analysis of Sustainable Tourism Performances of Eastern Black Sea Region Provinces

İsmail ÇALIK [1] , Orhan BATMAN [2]


The research aims to determine the sustainable tourism indicators specific to the Eastern Black Sea Region of Turkey and to make inferences about the tourism performance of the region under the light of pre-determined indicators. To fulfill this purpose, qualitative and quantitative methods were employed together in the research. The secondary data used in the research were obtained from the time series published by the relevant public institutions between 2008/2012. As for the qualitative research, the data were collected by using a semi-structured interview technique. As a result of the research, it may be commented that the sustainable tourism performances of the provinces in the region remained at low levels according to the total values of the sustainable performance index and alleged that meaningful problem fields that may constrain sustainable tourism development in the region exist.
Bu araştırmada, Doğu Karadeniz Bölgesi'ne özgü sürdürülebilir turizm göstergelerinin belirlenmesi ve belirlenen göstergeler ışığında bölgenin turizm performansı hakkında çıkarımlar yapılması amaçlanmaktadır. Araştırmada nitel ve nicel yöntemler bir arada kullanılmıştır. Araştırmada kullanılan ikincil veriler, 2008/2012 yılları arasında ilgili kamu kurumları tarafından yayınlanan zaman serilerinden elde edilmiştir. Nitel araştırmada kullanılan veriler ise yarı yapılandırılmış görüşme tekniği kullanılarak toplanmıştır. Araştırma sonucunda, bölge illerinin sürdürülebilir turizm performanslarının, sürdürülebilir performans endeksi toplam değerleri sonuçlarına gore düşük seviyelerde kaldığı ve bölgede sürdürülebilir turizm gelişimini engelleyecek ciddi sorun alanlarının bulunduğu söylenebilir.
