Tourism Development and Sustainability of Communities from Policy & Management Perspective

Tourism has been a leading sector in global socio-economic development since 1992 when the United Nations advocated sustainable strategies for future societies. Sustainable tourism or ecotourism is a typical method of combining regional development with environmental preservation. This report considers tourism development and policy in Japan in terms of sustainability, focusing on issues of management systems of local tourism sites from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. The discussion of this report is divided into three parts: a survey of tourism and policy development in Japan; a common pool approach to facilitating tourism management and policy design from micro and local perspectives; and theoretical and empirical investigations of this common pool approach applied to the analysis of sustainable tourism development.
