Sustainable Tourism on a Finite Planet challenges readers to consider new skills, tools, and investments required to protect irreplaceable global resources from the impacts of escalating tourism demand in the next 50 years. This volume recommends that decision makers assess the current and future value of natural, social and cultural capital to guide investment in destinations and secure vital resources. Innovative approaches are proposed to support the transition to green infrastructure, protect incomparable landscapes, and engage local people in the monitoring of vital indicators to protect local resources.
This book serves as an academic text book, and offers approachable reading on lessons learned and new approaches for policy makers, business people, and environmental analysts alike.
