              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.

              In a world increasingly faced with, and divided by, regional and global crises, resilience has emerged as a key concept with significant relevance for tourism. A paradigmatic shift is taking place in the long-term planning of tourism development, in which the prevailing focus on ...sustainability is being enhanced with the practical application of resilience planning. This book provides a critical appraisal of sustainability and resilience, and the relationship between the two. Contributions highlight the complexity of addressing social change with resilience planning in a range of tourism contexts, from islands to mountains, from urban to remote environments, and in a range of international settings. Case studies articulate how tourism is both an agent of social change and a victim of larger change processes, and provide important lessons on how to deal with increasingly unstable economic, social and environmental systems. This is the first book to specifically examine social change and sustainability in tourism through a resilience lens. This much-needed contribution to the literature will be a key resource for those working in tourism studies, tourism planning and management, social geography, and development studies, among others.

              Tourism Resilience and Adaptation to Environmental Change: Definitions and Frameworks (Hardback)

              Edited by Lew, Alan A.; Cheer, Joseph M.

              Resilience lies at the core of understanding the adaptive capacity of people and places in complex social and environmental systems. Resilience theory has made significant contributions to our understanding of how the interacting systems of people and nature or social-ecological ...systems can best be managed to ensure a sustainable and resilient supply of the essential ecosystem services on which humanity depends. Despite this, tourism scholars have been slow to adopt resilience concepts, and the emergence of new frameworks and applications is pressing. Via a transnational lens, Understanding Tourism Resilience: Adapting to Environmental Change draws on original empirical and theoretical insights on how tourism communities and economies respond to environmental change from a resilience perspective. Contributions will highlight the complexity and gradations of environmental change encounters and resilience planning responses in a range of tourism contexts from coastal to mountain, and from urban to remote settings. Cases will emphasize both fast-change (natural disaster and disaster recovery) and slow-change (socio-cultural, economic and ecological) variables, and draw on research from a variety of contexts including Asia, Oceania, Latin America and North America. This timely and significant work will appeal to students and scholars alike working in tourism studies, tourism management, environmental geography, environmental sciences and development studies, among others.
