What story does your landscape tell your tourists?

The natural landscape sets the stage for a great tourism experience. The landscape, however, is constantly changing, as it is affected by climate change, urbanisation, infrastructure and the emergence of alternative energy sources. These changes can be positive or negative for tourism, but also offer new opportunities. It is essential that we understand these challenges if we are to make wise decisions and create a sustainable tourism industry, which is able to flourish in a well-planned landscape.
