Introduction:

Responsible tourism has emerged as a particular theme for travel in 2018. ABTA (2017) reports how “The importance of creating better places for people to live in, and better places to visit, takes centre stage”.  

ABTA’s (2017) research also presented that Following the huge public rise in sentiment for programmes such as David Attenborough’s ‘Blue Planet II’ – the most watched programme of 2017 – and campaigns like Sky News’ Ocean Rescue Scheme, this trend looks set to continue and take centre stage in 2018. With a greater public awareness not only of environmental issues, but also of human rights and working conditions, tour operators and hoteliers are supporting this move towards responsible tourism that looks after our environment and our people. In 2018, we can expect more initiatives such as social enterprise projects which give back to local communities, carbon-neutral group tours and the banning of plastics from beaches”. 

The growing concern for destinations sustainability has underlined that an investigation to make sure everything is in cohesively in order across the industry as a whole is needed. Whereby it is not just about making recommendations but also actively seeking advice and support on your destinations current and future state. This is the purpose of a destination analysis/audit (demonstrated in table 1) and its main functions are to improve the performance, competitiveness and sustainability of a destination. Destination analyses are generally included as part of a more long-term plan, known as a Destination Development Plan (CTH 2011:94).
