Sustainable Tourism Futures from the Author: Stefan Gössling. A global industry and an important tool for economic development, international tourism is facing an increasingly uncertain future. Global environmental change, including climate change; increasing fuel prices; and growing criticism from environmental and social interest groups are posing substantial challenges to the belief that international tourism can be sustainable at current rates and patterns of growth. This book therefore aims to answer the questions of if and how tourism can be a sustainable industry. The book concludes that sustainable tourism is possible but that it requires fundamental shifts in operations, systems and philosophies. The various contributions identify a number of means by which this can be accomplished but stress that sustainable tourism still has a long way to travel before it can reach its destination.

Green Tourism Futures from the Author: . The National Climate Change Adaptation Framework identified tourism as one key sector vulnerable to the impacts of climate change in Australia. This paper evaluates how nine government tourism agencies are responding to the issue of climate change in Australia. Information on climate change, sustainability and going green is drawn from the corporate websites, annual reports, tourism plans, fact sheets, and case studies produced by these government tourism agencies from 2007 to 2010. The paper critically evaluates how government tourism agencies are addressing climate change issues, by promoting carbon reduction initiatives and carbon offsetting schemes for tourism operators. Climate change tourism responses are more developed in Australian states with climate change policies and in destinations vulnerable to the impacts of climate change or dependent on long haul travellers.

Tourism Research from the Author: Douglas G. Pearce. Tourism Research: a 20:20 vision examines how research agendas have evolved and might develop in coming years, consider conceptual and methodological advances, discuss obstacles that have been encountered and suggest ways forward. Its underpinning objective is to better understand how and why tourism research advances, or why it does not, and to provide a clearer sense of direction for researchers in this field. In this edited collection of reflective, challenging and sometimes provocative papers, derived from the 20th Anniversary meeting of the International Academy for the Study of Tourism, leading international tourism scholars from a range of disciplines, analyse what progress has been made in tourism research in the last two decades and where research might go in the future. These insights from acknowledged international experts in their field are invaluable to the current generation as well as new and emerging tourism researchers who will benefit from a greater understanding of how the field of tourism studies has evolved, what factors have shaped its development and how it might develop in the future. The collection begins with a series of stimulating broader perspectives on progress in tourism research. The next two sections focus on advances in research on tourism development and the business of tourism and on the path tourism research has taken in particular parts of the world which have experienced a significant growth in tourism in recent years. The final section considers more recent and emerging themes in tourism research and discusses how research on new topics arises and might proceed. In the concluding chapter, the editors identify lessons learnt and suggest ways forward.

Coastal Mass Tourism from the Author: Prof. Bill Bramwell. The Mediterranean coastal regions of Southern Europe have long been world leaders in mass tourism. This book examines some key questions for tourism development in these areas, with implications for similar regions across the world. The standardised forms of mass tourism are diversifying – with more specialised forms, notably those based on nature, culture and heritage, and those catering for special interests. There is a growing spectrum of modes of tourism, with an emphasis on variety, flexibility and permeability. Both mass tourism and the more diversified forms substantially impact on sustainable development. Policies promoting sustainable development are often of two main types: developing smaller-scale, alternative tourism products that are intended to be less damaging to the environment and society, and secondly, attempts to make mass tourism coastal resorts more sustainable. But there has been little critical assessment of these policies, either evaluating their basic assumptions or their successes and failures in practice. This edited book critically examines these issues for varied coastal regions in Southern Europe, including case studies from Spain, Croatia, Turkey, and north and south Cyprus.
