They support the idea that ecotourism contributes to develop environmental consciousness. However, it disturbs natural balance. One of the most important impacts of ecotourism is capturing of virgin natural territories in order to convert them to natural parks and wildlife parks that are marketed to tourists as green zones. Furthermore, ecotourism activities can lead to reduction respect the environment. To earn more money, some indigenous wealthy people cut down trees and damages natural areas so that they can build hotels guesthouses.
#GOAL: Sustainable Community Development A major prerequisite in developing sustainable communities is having a clear and concise definition of what it really is. According to J.A. Elliot (2013), a community characterized by consistent development maintained over time can be perceived as a sustainable community. There are numerous preconditions for development that need to be considered prior to the mitigation of its impact, since it takes place in different areas and contexts. With this, a sustainable community is able to overcome the challenges it faces and remain socially, environmentally, and economically resilient through integrated solutions that do not hinder the goals of others.
it lacks the financial resources to maintain operations, it will cease to exist. Weaver assures that “all sustainable tourism strategies must be formulated within the financial capabilities of the managing body” . Sustainable economic development participates in reducing the environmental impacts. Tourism is an economic activity that often takes place in natural environments, and to assure its sustainable future, a mutual beneficial relationship has to be developed between the two. In several locations, if income isn't provided by tourism to aid the natural environment preservation, local resources would go unprotected.
Sustainable development is cleaner, has the potential to be more efficient, has long-term potential and is is the only way forward for a growing world economy. People already use a huge amount of the Earth 's non-renewable resources to live their everyday lives. As more people join them, more of these resources are needed and the faster these resources are depleted. Over enough time, sustainable development will no longer be an option for people who want to feel good about their choices. It will be the only available option for cities and regional development.
Sustainable tourism considers equally economical, social and environmental aspects of tourism destinations. By respecting all three, it provides long run development with respect of caring capacity. Eco-certification, on the other hand, influences both supply and demand side of tourism market, and increases consumer’s confidence. Key words: sustainability, tourism, and certification Sustainable tourism is tourism, which concerns total economic, social and environmental impact, by caring for the needs of tourists, economy, environment and local communities. (Making Tourism More Sustainable, UNWTO&UNEP, 2011).
Harmoniously, the concepts and principles of sustainability should be applied to their energy saving, Human life is affected by the built environment; moreover, the negative or positive environmental influences affect the life of human being in a significant and considerable extent. The proportion of the population living in cities is expected to increase from 70 per cent in 2050 (Anthopoulos, L 2015) . Consequently, the sustainable building should have tremendous momentum. Respectively, the buildings and their activities represent approximately 31 per cent of global final energy demand, around one third of energy-related CO2 emissions, nearby two thirds of halocarbons, and almost 30 per cent of black carbon emissions (Felgueiras, et al.
• Sustainable forestry the practice of regulating usage of forest resources in such a way that the forest wealth is preserved. • Indiscriminate tree cutting is replaced by selective logging wherein you remove certain trees but preserve the balance of the woodland. Also young trees are allowed to mature before they are harvested, protected forests are created and trees are planted to expand forestlands. • A sustainable forest contains trees of all ages and different species. • In sustainable forestry, the first activity is to survey the land that's part of the sustainable forestry project.
Since the beginning of mankind on earth Building construction has had very big direct and indirect impacts on the environment, on society, and the economy. The field of sustainable design has got the aim of balancing the needs of these areas by method of creating designs that helps environment society and economy. The main goals of sustainable design are to reduce wasting of critical resources like energy, water, land, and raw materials; prevent environmental facilities and infrastructure from making the environment worse in their life cycle; and create environments that are livable, comfortable, safe, and productive. As a normal result of human-beings live their lives there,buildings use resources (energy, water, raw materials. ), produce
Based on the fact that tourism is involved with visitors entering the host country, this allows for greater use of the host countries resources and greater chances of land, water, air and noise pollution. Pollution leads to poisoning, increase in morality of Airborne and waterborne diseases thus having a negative impact on the tourism industry. Sustainable tourism a marketing perspective by Victor T.C. Middleton and Rebecca Hawkins chapter 2 can further elaborate on these global environmental issues as well as the others listed above. These global environmental issues however can be somewhat avoided or corrected by practicing Eco-tourism.
The two are inseparable." (Based on Our Common Future, 1987) Thus, today, we define Sustainable development ‘…as the kind of development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’. The two key concepts of sustainable development are: 1. the concept of "needs", which are the essential needs of the world's poorest people which should be given overriding priority; 2. “limitations” which are imposed by the state of technology and social organizations on the environment's ability to meet both present and future needs Brundtland’s definition and ideas recognised the dependency of humans on the environment for their needs and well-being in a much wider sense than merely exploiting resources. It acknowledges that “ecology and economy are becoming ever more interwoven – locally, regionally, nationally and globally”.
