Description of this Book

In a world that is increasingly divided and faced with global environmental crisis, resilience is becoming a key concept with great relevance for tourism. This book signals a paradigmatic shift in the long term planning of tourism development, moving away from the dominant focus on sustainability and towards a focus on resilience planning. It provides a critical appraisal of sustainability and resilience, and the relationship between the two. Contributions highlight the complexity of social change with resilience planning in a range of tourism contexts, from islands to mountains, from urban to remote environments, in a range of international settings. From the case studies provided, important lessons can be drawn as to how to deal with increasingly unstable economic, social and environmental systems.
