Sustainable Tourism In Protected Areas from the Author: Paul F. J. Eagles. The link between protected areas and tourism is as old as the history of protected areas. These guidelines, prepared by staff from IUCN - the World Conservation Union, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP, and the World Tourism Organization (WTO), aim to build an understanding of protected area tourism, and its management. They provide both a theoretical structure and practical guidelines for managers. The underlying aim is to ensure that tourism contributes to the purposes of protected areas and does not undermine them.

Sustainable Tourism Iv from the Author: C. A. Brebbia. Tourism has become a major international industry, with many countries all over the world relying on the income it produces. Because it is a major source of finances and employment, government and other institutions activitely promote tourism, regardless of the impact on the environment, ecology and social structure of the region. The demands of tourism can contribute to the destruction of the natural and cultural environment upon which it depends. The natural and cultural landscape's capacity to accommodate the local and worldwide effects of tourism, the typology thereof and its implications for the economy and society constitute very important study objectives. The development of tourism can result in the degradation of natural landscapes that paradoxically attract tourists to such areas. Featured topics include: Tourism Strategies; Tourism as a Tool of Development; Tourism Impact; Tourism and Protected Areas; Rural Tourism; Community Involvement; IT and Tourism; Climate Change and Tourism; Environmental Issues; Art, Architecture and Culture; Modelling; Emergent Strategies for Tourism Development; Landscape and Tourism; Tourism and Urban Planning.

Tourism has become a major international industry, with many countries all over the world relying on the income it produces.

Issues concerned with achieving environmental social and economic sustainability of tourism alongside the governance mechanisms needed to support sustainable tourism are highlighted. Also discussed is how new resources ought to be employed to avoid the errors committed in the past and propose remedial actions when required. This book takes a broad view of this sophisticated and complex industry, and examines the practice of sustainable tourism from global travel trends through to destination and site management. Innovative solutions, including ecological tourism, as well as cultural initiatives that will lead to better approaches to tourism with the objective of preserving the diversity of our planet.

This can be achieved through new strategies involving the active collaboration of society as a whole. Topics covered include: Tourism strategies; Environmental issues; Emergent strategies for tourism development; Community issues; Climate change; Safety and Security; Tourism as a tool of development; Art, architecture and culture; Heritage tourism; Special interest tourism; Marine and coastal areas tourism; Sport tourism; City tourism; Tourism impact; Tourism and protected area; Rural tourism; Transport and tourism; Education and training; Theme parks; Destination management; Planning and development; Simulation models; Social and physical infrastructure.
