Resilienz im Tourismus – Destination Risk and Resilience Manual – Erongo Region, Namibia

Erscheinungsjahr: 2022

Projekt: Resilienz im Tourismus

Tourism has the potential to boost the revenue of the economy, create employment in the tourism industry and in other different industries, develop the infrastructure of a country, and foster a sense of cultural exchange between tourists/visitors and the host country. As a consequence of being able to affect various sectors and industries of Namibia, tourism is said to be “everyone’s business”. Unfortunately, tourism destinations in every corner of the globe face the virtual certainty of experiencing a disaster of one form or another at some point in their history (Faulkner; 1945-2002). Hence, tourism resilience has emerged as a key concept that can foster a sustainable tourism destination. This manual has therefore been developed collaboratively, with the tourism public sector, private sector, academics and NGOs for use in addressing tourism destination resilience. The manual may also be of interest to any other entities, private or public, who would like to better understand and implement tourism destination resilience within the Namibian context.
