  1. Local Resources, Territorial Development and Well-being

    Local Resources, Territorial Development and Well-being

    Edited by Jean-Christophe Dissart, Natacha Seigneuret
    Using empirical evidence, this book argues for a more comprehensive view of the diversity of local resources and well-being from a territorial perspective. The first part of the book addresses the contrasting nature of local resources: in connection with proximity and governance, the ground, the past, cultural heritage sites, the snow, and energy. Well-being from multiple perspectives is examined in the second part, shedding light on sociabilities vs. income level, accessibility for pedestrians, health via urban design, life course trajectories as indicators of quality of life, and the connection between amenities and social justice.

    A Research Agenda for Tourism and Development

    Edited by Richard Sharpley, David Harrison
    Tourism is integral to local, regional and national development policies; as a major global economic sector, it has the potential to underpin economic growth and wider development.

This Research Agenda offers a state-of-the-art review of the research into the tourism-development nexus. Exploring issues including governance, policy, philanthropy, poverty reduction and tourism consumption, it identifies significant gaps in the literature, and proposes new and sometimes provocative avenues for future research.

  17. The Economics of Tourism and Sustainable Development

    The Economics of Tourism and Sustainable Development

    Edited by Alessandro Lanza, Anil Markandya, Francesco Pigliaru
    Although economics has increasingly become a technical subject, this accessible book aims to present important economics results and relate them explicitly to the policy debate. Using a coherent analytical framework, this unique approach offers prescriptions for moving tourism, and economic development more generally, closer to a sustainable ideal. The authors begin by studying the macroeconomic effect of tourism in terms of growth performance and sources of growth. They also examine how the tourism–growth link is affected by the role of imports in the economy, and how tourism impacts upon land use. Further chapters investigate the important issue of forecasting visitor numbers and explore the need for a comprehensive accounting framework to take account of ecologically sustainable tourism. The authors also examine the microeconomic aspects of sustainable tourism and analyse the increasing popularity of environmentally friendly holidays. Learn More

    Environmental Management and the Competitiveness of Nature-Based Tourism Destinations

    Twan Huybers, Jeff Bennett

Such costs can make tourism destinations less competitive, but the same activities can also enhance competitiveness by increasing demand. The aim of this book is to provide an assessment of the relative importance of these two opposing effects in the context of a case study of nature-based tourism in Tropical North Queensland, Australia.
