The growth of tourism has prompted debate about environmental consequences and desirability of further development. The effects of mass tourism and increasing awareness of the human impact on the environment led more environmentally sensitive forms of tourism such as ecotourism and wildlife-based tourism. With this increasing awareness environmental concerns are explicitly included in sectoral policies and programmes concerning many areas including tourism, urban and rural development. One of the recent examples of environment being involved in tourism planning can be examined in Turkey's Tourism Strategy 2023 and the 9th Five Year National Development Plan as both of them promotes ecotourism regions to develop nature based tourism. The Tourism Strategy of Turkey 2023, with its emphasis on cultural, health and environmental areas, has laid out the blueprint for the country's future development. By the implementation of this plan; nine culture and tourism zones and seven tourism development corridors, 10 tourism cities, ecotourism zones will be created. Implementation has merely started recently, but the plan is anticipated to be highly influential on Turkey's tourism. The researchers in this study examine Turkish tourism policies and planning with a specific focus on Tourism Strategy of Turkey 2023. The plan is studied in detailed to monitor the integration of environmental concern and ecotourism in tourism development plans and aimed zones. © 2009 All Rights Reserved by the International Multidisciplinary Scientific GeoConference SGEM Printed in Sofia, Bulgaria.
