Abstract

For the past 50 years or so, tourism as a socio-economic phenomenon has been steadily growing, despite what can be seen today as temporary blips in which growth has slowed or numbers have actually fallen for a short period. Some of these factors leading to a decline or a slowing in growth have been as a result of natural causes and others have occurred following human induced changes. Looking to the future, there are a number of factors that can assist in the further growth and development of tourism and yet other factors that can restrict development and even turn growth into decline. This chapter considers future developments in tourism.
