Recent years have witnessed an upsurge of interest in the concept of sustainable tourism. For the most part, attention has focused on defining the concept. Authors have reasoned that in order to achieve sustainable tourism, a sound understanding must first be gained of what the concept means. This article does not take issue with this general approach, but nevertheless argues that the time has now come to move on from defining sustainable tourism, to begin to consider how it may best be implemented in practice. An approach based on the methodology of environmental economics is suggested as a possible way forward.
Some suggestion about soustainable Tourism in Africa
Sub-Saharan African economies, ‘conventional’ tourism may be more suitable for the developed world than African countries. Suitable alternative perspectives of development in are suggested.
Wildlife tourism provides substantial benefits to local communities; it enhances their motivation for wildlife conservation (Kubo & Shoji, 2014; Schwoerer et al., 2016). Previous studies have shown the potential demand for a wide variety of wildlife viewing (Richardson et al., 2014; Steven et al., 2013). However, scarce research has addressed the uncertainty of wildlife sightings on such tours, even though it is a common and important challenge in tourism (Evans et al., 1996; Meynecke et al., 2017; Scott & Lemieux, 2010).
