Tourism has experienced constant growth worldwide over the last decades. Studies carried out point out an average annual growth rate in the number of international arrivals and the estimation is that it will continue to rise. The impact of tourism reinforces the idea of developing tourism under sustainable principles and constitutes multiple environmental challenges to be faced by managers, regulators and academics because, if appropriately managed, tourism can be a great economic revitalizer. This book illustrates different models and experiences with a common final perspective: to generate knowledge on how to make effective and applicable the broad concept of sustainable tourism. Readers will have the opportunity to learn from these contributions and to apply that understanding to their day-to-day work in the tourism industry.
