PART V - APPLIED AND FUTURE TOURISM GEOGRAPHIES
Tourism Geography, 3rd edition
CHAPTER ABSTRACTS & KEY CONCEPTS
Chapter 12 - Planning and managing tourism development
Tourism planning and the management of tourism destinations requires an understanding of the principles of the comprehensive or rational planning process, the different types of tourism plans (from business/industry to community oriented), elements of a tourism plan, and different scales of planning (from the national level to community-based). Planning is an essential mechanism for structuring and ordering tourism space, and the way that planning is applied to tourism varies across space and between different locations, producing a variety of tourism places and experiences.
Chapter 13 - Emerging and future tourism geographies
A review of recent tourism geography research trajectories in academia furthers our understanding of this complex and constantly changing phenomenon. Five emerging conceptual frameworks and topical research areas are identified that may evolve into significant research paradigms for the future: Evolutionary economic geography; Resilience theory and planning; Political ecology; Language and tourism; and Digital communications and transportation technologies. These provide a context for the consideration of career opportunities for tourism geography students.
