Eagles, Paul F.J. ; McCool, Stephen F. ; Haynes, Christopher D. Best Practice Guidelines Nº 8

Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas Cover

The link between protected areas and tourism is as old as the history of protected areas. Though the relationship is complex and sometimes adversarial, tourism is always a critical component to consider in the establishment and management of protected areas. These guidelines aim to build an understanding of protected area tourism, and its management. They provide both a theoretical structure and practical guidelines for managers. The underlying aim is to ensure that tourism contributes to the purposes of protected areas and does not undermine them.
