Chapter 5 Nature-based tourism and community resilience
Restricted access

Adaptation to change is one of the greatest challenges facing society today, and community resilience is an important framework for understanding how communities thrive in the face of change. This chapter provides an overview of the contribution of nature-based tourism (specifically, NBT firms) to community resilience. This contribution can occur within or across multiple dimensions: 1) economic, such as enhancing sectoral and livelihood diversity, 2) social, such as enhancing social capital, social cohesion, and community infrastructure, and 3) environmental, such as enhancing public support for conservation and providing an incentive to maintain landscapes in an undeveloped state.
