The article discusses sustainable tourism. Travel and tourism is among the world's largest industries, accounting for almost 10% of global GDP. The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) defines it as tourism that meets the needs of present tourist and host regions while protecting and enhancing opportunity for the future. Sustainable tourism should not involve a trade-off between the negative environmental impacts of travel and the socio-economic benefits, says the author.
