Responsible Tourism Strategies…
• Will hope to either:
– MAXIMISE POSITIVE IMPACTS OF TOURISM
OR
– MINIMISE NEGATIVE IMPACTS OF TOURISM
Strategies
Strategies are based on IMPACTS
E.g. Tourism Impact = traffic congestion
• Strategy = MINIMISE traffic congestion
E.g. Tourism impact = jobs in Cambridge
• Strategy = MAXIMISE tourism jobs growth
P3 Scenario
The final part of your Visit England work involves
writing a report about the strategies used to
manage responsible tourism.
This assignment should be completed
individually.
The Task
Your presentation (for Assignment 1) identified
examples of impacts in a range of destinations.
Now Visit England wish to know what kind of
strategies could be adopted to maximise
positive and minimise negative impacts.
Task 5 (P3)
• How effective are these strategies?
P3
examine strategies used
to manage responsible
tourism in destinations
To achieve P3 you need to examine strategies
used to maximise positive impacts and minimise
negative impacts.
You must demonstrate understanding
of the different strategies used by:
For this task you should write about:
• Strategies to maximise positive impacts: eg retention
of visitor spending, widening access to facilities,
community projects, employment and training of
locals, education.
• Strategies to minimise negative impacts: eg visitor
and traffic management, planning control,
implementing changes as a result of environmental
impact assessments, sustainable tourism policies.
• Destinations: town or city; countryside; seaside;
more economically developed world (MEDW); less
economically developed world (LEDW)
P3 Scenario
Each strategy needs to be linked to a specific
destination.
So we might say….
“…minimising traffic congestion is a strategy that
has been adopted by Cambridge City Council
[the destination]”
M’s and D’s
Task 6 (M2)
• Critically examine the way one destination has
implemented strategies and give your opinion as
to how successful this has been.
Task 7 (D2)
• Finally, please make some recommendations for
improvement based on best practice in other
areas.
