Destination competitiveness, the environment and sustainability: challenges and cases.

Book cover for Destination competitiveness, the environment and sustainability: challenges and cases.


This book provides insights on the topic of tourism destination management, focusing on the analysis of three main issues: (1) the factors influencing destination competitiveness, (2) the environmental dimension of tourism (including climate change issues); and (3) destination sustainability. The book is structured into three parts comprising 15 main chapters. Each part constitutes a monographic view on every topic analysed through the book. The chapters employ case studies in order to illustrate their contributions. The analysis presents an interdisciplinary approach, including contributions from economists, managers, geographers and marketing professionals.
