About this Unit
This unit introduces students to the basic theories of tourism planning in the context of sustainable development. Students will understand the critical contemporary issues in relation to sustainable tourism planning and development. The planning implications and critical problems of local participation in the planning process through a wide range of situational case studies in both developed and developing countries will be discussed. The emphasis of this unit is the dynamic and complex theories of tourism planning. The changes brought by tourism development require both public and private sectors to have specialised knowledge and training in order to achieve sustainable outcomes.
