Considering the importance of ecotourism in Iran’s Kermanshah province due to its natural potentials and continental variety and compatibility of this type of tourism with the sustainable development concept, therefore due to the environmental conditions of its regions, and on the other hand, necessity of strategic planning in this field, the main aim of this study is to formulate developmental strategies for the ecosystem of the Kermansha province using the SWOT model and theEvidential 20 English Abstracts Reasoning (ER) Approach. The SWOT method was used to extract possible strategies considering internal and external factors, and the Evidential Reasoning (ER) Approach was employed to prioritize and select superior strategies considering lack of access to adequate information. Finally, two strategies assigning management and exploitation of recognized ecotourism locations to the private sector and planning to create combined ecotourism tours with other prioritized areas of tourism in the province were chosen as priority strategies for developing ecotourism in the province.
