Ecotourism, a niche tourism market, is considered to be one of the fastest growing segments of the tourism industry. This compendium provides specific case studies demonstrating ecotourism in practice and illustrates how tourism operators are aiming to meet the principles of sustainable tourism. This comprehensive study is directed towards government institutions, private companies and individuals involved in the ecotourism sector as well as those concerned more broadly with the environmental, social and economic sustainability of tourism organizations. It aims to help UNWTO Member States to operate and develop their tourism businesses to meet the demands of sustainable tourism, using the Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria as a benchmark.
