Tourism And Sustainable Community Development from the Author: Greg Richards. As the tourist industry becomes increasingly important to communities around the world, the need to develop tourism sustainably has also become a primary concern. This collection of international case-studies addresses this crucial issue by asking what local communities can contribute to sustainable tourism, and what sustainability can offer local communities. Individually these investigations present a wealth of original research and source material. Collectively the book illuminates the term 'community', the meaning of which, it is argued, is vital to understanding how sustainable tourism development can be implemented in practice.

Tourism Planning And Community Development from the Author: Rhonda Phillips. The intersection of community development, tourism and planning is a fascinating one. Tourism has long been used as a development strategy, in both developed and developing countries, from the national to local levels. These approaches have typically focused on economic dimensions with decisions about tourism investments, policies and venues driven by these economic considerations. More recently, the conversation has shifted to include other aspects – social and environmental – to better reflect sustainable development concepts. Perhaps most importantly is the richer focus on the inclusion of stakeholders. An inclusionary, participatory approach is an essential ingredient of community development and this brings both fields even closer together. It reflects an approach aimed at building on strengths in communities, and fostering social capacity and capital. In this book, the dimensions of the role tourism plays in community development are explored. A panoply of perspectives are presented, tackling such questions as, can tourism heal? How can tourism development serve as a catalyst to overcome social injustices and cultural divides? This book was originally published as a special issue of Community Development.

Tourism In Destination Communities from the Author: Shalini Singh. Annotation. As a result of the ongoing growth in the tourism industry, many destinations around the world are undergoing transformations. New destinations are being 'discovered' in regions previously ignored, as people search for regions that are yet unspoiled by the ravages of mass tourism. At the same time, traditional destinations are experiencing rapid environmental, socio-cultural and economic modifications. These changes have the most effect on the destination community - the location where tourists spend their time and money, and influence development or degradation of the local environment.Tourism in Destination Communities describes both the positive and negative effects of tourism on the destination community. The chapters are divided into three sections which address the relationship between tourism and the destination community, the various impacts of tourism on the destination community and the challenges and opportunities for destination communities. Each chapter contains brief case studies and empirical examples.

Destination Community from the Author: David Twiggs. Giving New Life to Old or Forgotten Communities - Understand the branding of small communities for improved tourism, economic development and placemaking. In this book, David Twiggs discusses tourism in destination communities, destination branding for small cities and community development through tourism. This book intends to layout the components of creating an Integrated Tourism System for Destination Communities. These concepts can be used to develop destination communities in urban as well as rural settings for truly sustainable communities. To build an understanding of this process the following areas will be discussed: - Opportunities Resulting From Value and Behavioral Shifts In Specific Target Markets - Using Complementary Subcultures as Basis for Building Specific Destinations - Understanding Subcultures and Human Capital - Cataloging System Assets and Creating Narrative of Place - Growth and Maturation of Destination Communities Why You Need to Read Destination Community: This book begins with where does the concept of "destination community" come from, how does it work and where to go from here, how it develops and matures. We see the shifts in cultural values in the American society since the 1950's, which results from the economic prosperity and technology advancement. The culture shift brings forward the changes in people's lifestyle, when people became more and more distant from the agrarian based living. Later, the shift in community models and tourism experience is discussed. As the formula community, as David calls it, rises and declines, the concept of Destination Community, as a more sustainable tourism based community, is introduced. The new generation of in-migration is becoming smarter in choosing their community. We explore the main characteristics of a destination community, why David calls it "handmade" experience, and why people are attracted by it. It all comes down to connecting authentic and versatile "subcultures" fostered by a supportive business environment. Later we look at theory and examples to explain a supportive business environment, namely "Integrated Tourism System," and how to design such a system. In David's opinion, this is a key to the success of a destination community. We lay out the vision of the future growth beyond the initial phases of building a destination community, where all readers are invited to imagine with us, work with us and proceed with hope, creativity, passion, and thoughtfulness.

Establishing a link between tourism studies and development studies, it considers what is meant by development, the processes through which development may be achieved and, in particular, a number of fundamental issues related to the use of tourism as a development agent. In so doing, it challenges conventional thinking about the relationship between tourism and development.
