Sustainable Tourism in Vietnam: A Social-Ecological Analysis
Tourism has rapidly developed in Vietnam over the past three decades. Sustainable tourism has received increasing attention from researchers and practitioners. This study synthesizes literature outlining both social and ecological sustainability aspects in the utilization of natural and cultural resources for tourism development. Along with the ecological realm of governing marine and forest resources in tourism, the authors also discuss the social aspects of sustainability concerning cultural heritage conservation, community engagement, and visitor management. The analysis results in a call for a systemic approach to tourism development.
