Many of the world's islands are dependent on tourism as their main source of income. It is therefore imperative that these destinations are managed for long-term viability. The natural appeal of a destination is typically one of its main tourism related assets, yet the natural environment is also the feature most directly threatened by potential overexploitation. Sustainable Tourism in Island Destinations builds on existing literature in the subject by providing innovative discussions and practical management structures through the use of the authors' various island project work. An original feature is the focus on islands which are part of larger nations, rather than just on island sovereign states. Through an illustrated case study approach, the book focuses on the successes and challenges islands face in achieving sustainable tourism. The authors put forward innovative mechanisms such as multi-stakeholder partnerships and incentive-driven non-regulatory approaches as ways that the sustainability agenda can move forward in destinations that face specific challenges due to their geography and historic development. The case studies - from Canada, St Kitts, Honduras, China, Indonesia, Spain, Tanzania and Thailand - provide the foundation which suggests that alternative approaches to tourism development are possible if they retain sustainability as a priority.

Review:

'The theme of this volume is the relationship between tourism, development and the environment of islands and the examples featured succeed in capturing the flavour and urgency of the situation in island locations. They should help to teach all who care about islands and their character some of the steps that we need to take to ensure that character remains in the future.' Professor Richard W. Butler, University of Strathclyde, UK 'This book provides some answers. It grasps the challenge of sustainability within tourism livelihoods to explore the vulnerabilities that tourism livelihoods create and redress. The island context becomes poignant given the diversity of the case studies, yet the familiarity of many of the topics is often enhanced by the island context.' Ilan Kelman, Center for International Climate and Environmental Research, Oslo, Norway
