This publication contains around 50 examples of good practices in sustainable development and management of tourism, collected from 31 countries. A variety of projects are presented, ranging from local to regional and national levels, including activities of the public, private and NGO sectors, covering aspects of eco-, rural- and cultural tourism, accomodations, tour operations, transportation, protected area management, regulatory and voluntary frameworks, among others. Each case is described in a systematic order, including background information, success factors for sustainability, problems aroused and their solutions, lessons learnt, and monitoring activities.
