Responsible Tourism & Heritage: What is the economic contribution?

Culture, WTM London, 2013

It has long been recognised that tourism contributes to the maintenance of our world’s natural and cultural heritage. This year we are asking the panellists to focus on what tourism revenues contribute to the conservation of the heritage and how it benefits the local communities who live in or near the sites and whose heritage it is. How much is tourism putting back into conservation and the communities who live in or near the sites?
