Abstract

This book presents some of the issues, challenges and initiatives that can help improve our understanding of quality in ecotourism. We hope that looking at the spectrum of quality assurance mechanisms currently available, presenting the perspectives and viewpoints of a range of stakeholders and the lessons learnt from other related areas of the tourism industry (e.g. Fair Trade) we have provided clues and pointers on how to convert the potential and promises ecotourism makes into reality. We feel this book presents a collection of previously unheard voices and interesting perspectives on quality in ecotourism that will allow a greater understanding of what is required, but also an appreciation of the challenges of delivering quality ecotourism.
