About this book

This book puts forth new challenges and new methods for the planning of outdoor recreation and tourism. The first two chapters offer a description of the problems which the public and the private sectors are facing. Following chapters deal with several aspects of the problems, including trends and changes in outdoor recreation and tourism, previous policies of planning for recreation and tourism, shortcomings in policies and actions, and new approaches in several countries, such as the United States, France, Switzerland and The Netherlands. Finally, the book gives examples of new methods and approaches for the planning of outdoor recreation and tourism. These methods are demonstrated with specific areas or projects from the aforementioned countries. This book will be invaluable to all those who bear the responsibility of providing human beings with possibilities and facilities to spend their free time in their own desired way, namely landscape and urban planners, conservationists, and landscape ecologists.
