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.

This book contains 35 papers from the Tourism Outlook Conference held in Lombok, Indonesia in July 2015. The book presents comprehensive discussions on sustainability in the tourism industry.

Case studies that are global in nature are presented to show how sustainable applications can be used and how concerns can be addressed.

Sustainable Cultural Tourism from the Author: Susan Guyette. This practical text guides tourism planning and development efforts from within cultures-addressing regional linkages, the tourism plan, visitor surveys, marketing, cultural centers and museums, job creation, and enterprise development, as well as evaluation of sustainability. A new paradigm for a value-based approach is discussed with examples throughout the book. Planning processes illustrate ways of integrating culture into sustainable tourism development and case studies at the end of each chapter identify community-based success factors. Lists for further reading are presented at the end of each chapter. From the Back Cover Cultural tourism of the future will foster authenticity and learning experiences through small-scale, linked enterprise networks. This book presents a value-based planning and development method for cultural tourism, coming from within the community context. Through planning and sustainable practices, tourism can support earned livelihood, cultural retention, and resource protection. Sustainability is possible through a worldview that respects cultural values and natural cycles, rather than a lineal, profit-based economic perspective. Culture guides actions, and is therefore the cornerstone of economic and ecological sustainability. The author designed this book to emphasize a cyclical process of community-based planning, development, evaluation and redirection. Special Features: A step-by-step process for cultural tourism planning and sustainable community development, A methodology for planning cultural tourism from within cultures, A framework for integrating culture into each step of the process, An emphasis on the regional approach and collaborative actions, Methods for both community and visitor surveys, Strategies for cultural retention and teaching programs, Guidelines for culturally-based entrepreneurial programs and small enterprise development, A process for developing a cultural center, Techniques for writing a business plan and starting a culturally-based tour enterprise, and A framework for assessing cultural sustainability.
