Tourism In Pacific Islands from the Author: Stephen Pratt. Over the past two decades, tourism has become the major driver of economic growth in many Pacific Island countries, most notably Fiji, Cook Islands, Vanuatu and Samoa, and it is becoming one of the only viable options for economic development in many others. These islands and small states are especially vulnerable to such external influences as climate change, natural disasters, political unrest and downturns in the global economy. A narrow resource base and a fragile and often vulnerable natural environment also affects the growth and development of tourism. This timely book explores these current issues and future challenges in one volume. It is divided into four sections to fully examine the issue of tourism and climate change, the success and otherwise of indigenous tourism development in the Pacific, tourism’s socio-economic impact and challenges to tourism development in Pacific Island countries now and in the future. It is interdisciplinary in nature covering anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, environment / biology, economics and development studies. While the geographical range focuses particularly on the Pacific Islands, it extends beyond this region by including comparisons with other islands such as the Caribbean and offers relevant island tourism development insights. This text will be of interest to tourism students, researchers and academics in the fields of tourism, development studies and cultural studies.

The Routledge Handbook Of Tourism And Hospitality Education from the Author: Dianne Dredge. Tourism is much more than an economic sector, it is also a social, cultural, political, and environmental force that drives societal change. Understanding, responding to, and managing this change will inevitably require knowledge workers who are able to address a range of problems associated with tourism, travel, hospitality, and the increasingly complex operating environment within which they exist. The purpose of this Handbook is to provide an insightful and authoritative account of the various issues that are shaping the higher educational world of tourism, hospitality and events education and to highlight the creative, inventive and innovative ways that educators are responding to these issues. It takes as its central focus a dynamic curriculum space shaped by internal and external factors from global to local scales, a variety of values and perspectives contributed by a range of stakeholders, and shifting philosophies about education policy, pedagogy and teaching practice. A benchmark for future curriculum design and development, it critically reviews the development of conceptual and theoretical approaches to tourism and hospitality education. The Handbook is composed of contributions from specialists in the field, is interdisciplinary in coverage and international in scope through its authorship and content. Providing a systematic guide to the current state of knowledge on tourism and hospitality education and its future direction this is essential reading for students, researchers and academics in Tourism, Hospitality, Events, Recreation and Leisure Studies.

Tourism Climate Change And Sustainability from the Author: Maharaj Vijay Reddy. This book addresses many of the key themes that are seen as challenges to achieve sustainability and to mitigate climate change impacts in the near future, in the tourism sector. In particular it focuses on the economic drivers for growth in tourism as they relate to sustainable development, low-carbon travel and climate change impacts. A major feature is the integration of climate change and sustainability challenges, rather than treating them separately or with sustainability as an add-on. The first group of chapters addresses conceptual issues concerning the relationships between sustainability, climate change and tourism. The second section considers regional, national and international responses and initiatives, including those of agencies such as UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves, and the UK's South West Tourism. The third part provides a range of investigative research, including topics such as air travel and coral reef tourism, and case studies from locations such as southern Africa, Scandinavia and the Pacific islands. Other research dimensions discussed in the book are drawn from Brazil, Hawaii, England, Australia and New Zealand. Overall, the book focuses on some of the most crucial challenges facing tourism in developed and developing countries.
