“Tourism is one of the world’s fastest growing industries, but while bringing pleasure and incomes to millions, tourism is also putting more and more stress on fragile ecosystems. Its social, economic and environmental effects are immense and complex, not least because tourism often involves visits to sites of natural and cultural importance. Tourism is also a fiercely competitive global market, with incentives for putting short-term earnings before long-term environmental health”. Fonte: editor
