About this book

The Handbook on Tourism and Conservation demonstrates the intrinsic nexus between tourism, the environment and sustainable natural resources use. It applies Ostrom's social-ecological systems (SESs) theory as the analytical framework for reaching a consensus on divergent viewpoints within the context of global environmental change and emerging governance issues.

Reflecting the interdependency between tourism and biodiversity conservation, the book focuses on four thematic areas. These include tourism and conservation in protected areas; tourism and climate change; sustainable agritourism; and destination communities and natural resources conservation. Thus equity and environmental justice issues are highlighted in relation to how destination communities have benefitted from tourism activities. The Handbook will be a useful guide for policymakers and relevant institutions in the implementation of tourism policies that balance issues in tourism and environmental conservation equally and which in turn could enhance wider participation in tourism development by all stakeholders in the sector.

The Handbook will be a valuable resource for academics, researchers and students of tourism studies, geography, environmental policy, management and related fields. It will also be beneficial for sustainable tourism policymakers and planners.
