Environmental factors/issues which could affect the sustainability of the flow of tourists
An analysis of environmental factors/issues which could affect the sustainability of the flow of tourists from A (select a TTGR) to B (select a TDR).
use Leiper’s (2004) model to identify a tourism system, which includes a TTGR (Touristic Trip Generating Region) and a TDR (Tourist Destination Region). You are then required to discuss the issues
(environmental) that could affect the sustainability of tourism flow. You are to consider the various stakeholders who are affected by this flow and provide recommendations on how it could be
As an example, if you approach the issue from the perspective of people travelling between Sydney and Los Angeles you may discuss how airline deregulation since 2008 has led to a growth in the
number of airlines flying the route and the resultant drop in air fares due to increased competition. What is the impact of more flights on the physical environment and to what extent has Los
Angeles and California sought to both market itself to Australia travellers and offer tourism services which cater to the needs of Australian travellers? What has been the impact on a growth of
traffic on the nature and number of businesses serving the Sydney market to West coast USA ?
The structure of your report should comprise
A brief introduction to the topic which includes the aim of the research
A rationale for its study (citing other writers’ views and opinions)
How exactly this effect or impact occurs or is likely to occur (you could use examples from outside the region that you are focusing on)
Some facts, figures or statistics to illustrate the extent of the interaction or likely interaction.
Your preliminary assessment of whether the interaction is significant within this particular tourism system
A conclusion with an initial prognosis for the future. Is this interaction something the tourism industry and relevant stakeholders should be monitoring? Will this become more significant in the
future? How can it be managed sustainably? Will its significance subside in time?
