Sustainable practices: implications for tourism and recreation development



Sustainable practices: implications for tourism and recreation development



General Technical Report Intermountain Research Station, USDA Forest Service ( INT-323): 18-22



This study identifies the extent to which those in the planning and design professions in the USA have integrated sustainable development concepts in their practice. Factor analysis revealed six dimensions of sustainability: (1) energy, (2) wildlife habitat, (3) transportation, (4) education, (5) economy, and (6) citizen participation. These dimensions can help form the basis of the planning and design processes relative to tourism and recreation.
