A participatory decision support tool to access costs and benefits or tourism development scenarios : application of the ADAPTIVE model to Greater Giyani, South Africa

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

The tourism industry represents a thriving business and offers many opportunities for tourism development all around the world. Each development will have its economic, socio-cultural and ecological costs and benefits. Many of these are difficult to assess and to value, which often leads to unsustainable development characterised by short-term economic benefits and high costs on the long-term. The participatory integrated assessment decision support tool named ADAPTIVE and developed within this project, helps policy makers, spatial planners, park managers and other stakeholders to analyse all effects of potential development plans and aggregates them into a total monetary value for each scenario. The tool has been applied for illustrative purpose to the case-study area of Greater Giyani, South-Africa
