The triple bottom line of sustainable tourism
« on: June 04, 2016, 03:51:37 PM »
Sustainable tourism has three key components, sometimes referred to as the “triple bottom line”:
(International Ecotourism Society):

1. Environmentally: Sustainable tourism has a low impact on natural resources, particularly in   protected areas. It minimizes damage to the environment (flora, fauna, habitats, water, living marine resources, energy use, contamination, etc.) and ideally tries to benefit the environment.
2. Socially and culturally: It does not harm the social structure or culture of the community where it is located. Instead it respects local cultures and traditions. It involves stakeholders (individuals, communities, tour operators, government institutions) in all phases of planning, development, and monitoring, and educates stakeholders about their roles.
3. Economically: It contributes to the economic well being of the community, generating sustainable and equitable income for local communities and as many other stakeholders as possible. It benefits owners, employees and neighbors. It does not simply begin and then rapidly die because of poor business practices.

Our Government should develop tourism destinations based on this theory.
