  1. Environmental Management and the Competitiveness of Nature-Based Tourism Destinations

    Environmental Management and the Competitiveness of Nature-Based Tourism Destinations

    Twan Huybers, Jeff Bennett
    Environmental management, either voluntary or imposed, can add to the costs of nature-based tourism businesses. 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.

  3. THE ECONOMICS OF THIRD WORLD NATIONAL PARKS

    THE ECONOMICS OF THIRD WORLD NATIONAL PARKS

    Anup Shah
    In The Economics of Third World National Parks, Anup Shah argues that parks and reserves are worth preserving, rigorously analyses the problem and advocates solutions drawing on a wide range of sources. Issues discussed include the effects of economic activity on a national park, the tourist problem, valuing a national park and the use of cost–benefit decision-making. Dr Shah uses economic analysis to explore institutional arrangements which would compensate for externalities resulting from exploitation and over-use by tourists and local communities. The price mechanism, he argues, is not a satisfactory tool with which to protect areas of rich bio-diversity. Learn More
