Sustainable tourism and the millennium development goals; effecting positive change.


Sustainable tourism and the millennium development goals; effecting positive change.

Ed. by Kelly S. Bricker et al.

Jones & Bartlett


349 pages



Aiming to bring more awareness to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and inspire the tourism industry to contribute to them, Bricker (parks, recreation, and tourism, U. of Utah) et al. collect 13 chapters and 10 case studies that demonstrate how ecotourism and sustainable tourism can help support and meet the goals. Researchers of tourism and related fields from across the globe examine how the goals are addressed generally, then the relationship of ecotourism and sustainable tourism to each one. These include poverty reduction, education, women's empowerment, building community capacity, disease prevention, community well-being, preserving natural areas and biodiversity, ensuring environmental sustainability in marine environments, climate change, the role of volunteer tourism, and partnerships in certification and accreditation, ecotourism, and sustainable tourism programs.
