Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Capacities need to be strengthened for diverse actors at every step of the sustainable tourism value chain. Stakeholders need to be adaptable to deal with complex and changing socioecological conditions. Agencies, communities and businesses of all types and sizes need technical skills and capacity for adaptive governance, planning and conflict management. Because of the seasonal nature of tourism, and risks of lack of diversification, individuals and institutions involved in tourism often need to be trained in complementary productive activities to strengthen economic stability, diversity, livelihoods and resilience.
