Learning outcomes

Sustainable coastal tourism mostly depends on the clear water, healthy ecosystem, and well-preserved coastal environment. Coastal tourism has drawn worldwide attention and has become extremely competitive. When coastal tourism development is estimated only from business and profitability point of view, the environmental aspects are ignored. Such development leads to the damage of beach scenery, biodiversity loss, and ruin of the ecological system in coastal zone. The sustainable solutions may be suggested for better coastal conservation. Sustainable tourism “takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities”. Sucesseful case studies of sustainable coastal tourism development will be provided to course participants.
