It offers practical policies and plans for fostering harmonious relationships among local communities, the private sector, not-for-profit organizations academic institutions, and governments at all levels, as well as developing management practices and philosophies for the protection of natural, built, and cultural environments while reinforcing positive and orderly economic growth. It also confronts and explains the challenges on the tourism industry with respect to overtourism, climate change and global warming.
