Sustainable community-based tourism and host quality of life

Sustainable community-based tourism and host quality of life

General Technical Report Intermountain Research Station, USDA Forest Service ( INT-323): 63-68

Tourism development should include monitoring, evaluating, and improving host community quality of life as a condition for sustainability. Studies of tourism and quality of life in the host community should address both objective and subjective components and should include aspects of individual and community scales.
