Tourism is one of the development priorities of the government. This sector is growing into a promising industry. However, tourism should be developed with the readiness of the community to provide welfare for all people. However, people are often unable to participate in tourism development in their area. Therefore, they need to carry out capacity building efforts through non- governmental organizations and partnerships in supporting tourism development. Capacity building is used as capital for the community to part the productive economic development activities in the tourism sector and to survive the continuous environmental changes. This article aims to explore how a community capacity building model can be effectively used for the management of partnership tourism development in Indonesia. This study used a literature review by examining or critically reviewing the knowledge, ideas, or findings contained in an academically oriented body of literature and formulating theoretical and methodological contributions to certain topics. The results showed that community capacity building through partnerships tends to cause conflicts of interest, is not transparent, and local people no longer have the confidence and creativity to develop tourism as they are abandoned by the facilitator. Meanwhile, independent capacity building is more likely to produce sustainable tourism. Capacity building carried out through community initiatives results in high collectivity, which is independent and sustainable, because they carry out planning, implementation, and evaluation in the tourism development process from scratch.
