Abstract

This chapter revisits the theoretical relationship between tourism and development, within the framework of contemporary understandings of development objectives, processes and challenges and the necessary parameters of resource sustainability. Re-visioning development as prosperity, as opposed to economic growth, as well as recognition of the 'de-developmental' consequences of the growth imperative, points to the need for policies that allow for only targeted growth in tourism within an overall slowing down (or even de-growth)of tourism globally.
