Assessing and planning resilience in tourism.

Tobias Luthe and Romano Wyss

This research note reflects the lack of work on tourism governance and resilience with regard to interrelated impacts of global environmental change. For tourism management, assessing and planning resilience is of growing importance since change processes and their interrelations have become more complex in a globalized, accelerated world, placing tourism under pressure to respond and adapt to various factors. Adaptation and transformation processes to changing environmental, social and economic conditions require initiatives by various tourism actors with different functions in the tourism supply chain, and on different scales of governance, to be able to assess, plan and manage resilience over time. Resilience as a concept has much explanatory power that requires more attention in tourism research, both from a quantitative network governance and a more qualitatively informed research perspective.
