Tourism is one of the world's largest industries and one of its fastest growing economic sectors, helping to generate income and employment for local people. At the same time, it has many negative effects on the environment and local culture. Achieving a more sustainable pattern of tourism development is therefore a priority. This book aims to explore how tourism-related economic development can move closer to a sustainable ideal.
Grounded in economic theory and application, it analyses tourist satisfaction and the impacts of tourism on the host community, investigates the productivity of the industry and identifies factors that could increase economic and sustainable development such as trade relationships. It offers further insight into how destination sustainability can be measured and the economic benefits of a more sustainable destination.
