Responsible tourism management.

This chapter introduces the various tourism resources and discusses the difficulty in allocating resources between tourism and non-tourism uses. The concept of carrying capacity is discussed as a basis for understanding tourism impacts. A look into the interrelationships between economic, socio-cultural or environmental impacts reveals that many impacts are directly related and that positive impacts may coexist with negative effects.

The idea of sustainability and sustainable tourism development is introduced. Finally, a variety of management techniques are discussed.
