Developing countries are increasingly reliant on tourism to generate income. To do this successfully it is critical for them to have an understanding of the tourist phenomenon. This book provides a clear overview of 'West-South' tourism, reviewing and evaluating both theoretical perspectives as well as empirical studies of organized tours, backpackers, independent tourists and volunteer tourism. It concludes by outlining how developing countries can plan to attract the right kind of tourists.

  • Alternative approaches to assessing tradeoffs in resource management-- economic and environmental tradeoffs in tropical deforestation-- challenges facing favoured versus less-favoured agroecosystems-- institutional and policy issues. (Part contents).
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)9780851994352 20160605
The need for increased food production, enhanced economic growth and poverty reduction, whilst at the same time achieving environmental sustainability, is an issue of growing importance. This book address the linkages and tradeoffs involved in solving such key challenges. Some of the approaches taken are conceptual and theoretical, others report on specific empirical cases in which linked economic, biophysical and policy models have been used to generate analytical (often quantitative) estimates of tradeoffs, whilst others highlight institutional and policy issues involved in trying to achieve multiple social goals simultaneously. Emprical applications to areas throughout the developing world are included.

Sustainable development has been approached from many viewpoints over the past 15 years without a concise or precise definition of what sustainable development really stands for. James has solicited contributions from an international group of experts who write about aspects of sustainable development from many different disciplines. Their consensus is that sustainability depends upon concerted development across the spectrum of socioeconomic factors that affect the environment, natural resources, health, education, and welfare of the populations in the emerging nations. The necessity of incorporating indigenous knowledge with technological and international expertise has become crucial.

Following on from the 'Earth Summit' held in Rio in 1992 and the resulting Agenda 21, the key to successful implementation was believed to be that each country would choose its own solutions to the problems that needed to be overcome in order to move to a more sustainable path of development. This book examines the discontinuities that exist between national aspirations and local implementation of sustainable development strategies. It compares what is happening on the ground with formal national environmental action plans, sectoral plans and less formalized policies. It examines whether local knowledge, aspirations and actions are undermining national aspirations or whether they are being ignored at the national level with detrimental consequences to sustainable development. Using case studies from Zimbabwe, Botswana, Peru, South Africa, Burma, Namibia, the Caribbean, Indonesia, Tunisia and Brazil, the book compares progress, or lack of progress, between different sectors, cultures, regions and resources throughout the developing world, situating these within a global context. In doing so, it draws lessons from those cases which appear to be experiencing positive moves towards sustainability and sees whether common frameworks exist which point to the possibility that good practice may be transferable from one milieu to another.

In 1994, representatives from all over the world met in Costa Rica to discuss the impact of ecological economics on developing countries. That groundbreaking conference laid the foundation for this new collection of research on environmental sustainability. While most discussions on sustainable development focus on the industrialized nations, Environmental Sustainability: Practical Global Applications takes a different angle: it presents the views of the developing countries themselves on issues such as wildlife resources in Nambia, timber production in Costa Rica, property rights and land reform in South Africa, and other steps being taken to implement environmentally sustainable economies around the world.This is an ideal text for students of natural and social sciences, development professionals and entrepreneurs seeking opportunities for ecologically sustainable businesses. Academics will find it useful as a source of current research and for making new contacts in the field. For anyone interested in exploring the link between man and his environment-specifically, the relationship between economics and ecology- Environmental Sustainability, is a must.

This book examines administrative changes and reforms carried out in the developing nations: it looks at the role of the state, various administrative reforms carried out at the behest of the West but never fully materialized, and events leading to policy failures and administrative mishaps. It is a story of failed developmental goals told through the looking glass of administration and it is about directing, managing, and controlling the means used in and by Third World countries to achieve development. In addition to a history of development administration, this volume includes an analysis of bureaucratic corruption and accountability, the issue of capability building in science and technology transfer, the new challenge of the 1990s - how to achieve environmentally sustainable development in the face of resource constraints and ever-growing public demands and expectations, and a strategy for sustainable development administration as the Third World prepares for the 21st century.
