Abstract

Urban landscape, as an important impact factor on the quality of urban life, has been paid much attention to by citizens, governments and construction enterprises. Meanwhile, the issue that many cities follow some similar international styles degrades local customs and regional features. This trend should be pertinently analyzed and answered by researchers. Urban landscape comprises some spots and regions and is a dynamic system. Based on the current situation and academic proceedings, this research puts forward the concept of urban landscape network. By a case study of Hangzhou City construction, this paper conducts a grid analysis of the landscape grid network, and builds four sub-networks: natural scenery, historical development, road transportation, and land use. Using variance analysis, correlation analysis, multiple regression analysis, this paper examines the relationship between the four networks, and finally achieves a regression equation of the landscape network in accordance with the subjective satisfaction evaluation concerning the landscape.

Abstract

Climate change is one of the most important global environmental challenge facing humanity. Global tourism is deeply influenced by global climate change. This paper aims to study the impacts of climate change on global tourism in general and in selected countries and island nations. The increasing incidence of natural disasters is the major manifestation of climate change. Outbreak of epidemics is also considered as a consequence of climate change. These disasters pose great danger and cause severe damage to the basic infrastructure which supports tourism related activities. How global tourism is influenced by major natural disasters will be examined. Melting glaciers and rising sea levels are posing great challenge to global tourism as they are impacting several countries and islands. This aspect will also be examined. Climate change is impacting the biodiversity, which is the basic resource for tourism. Some of the instances of impacts of climate change on biodiversity and tourism will also be provided. Several countries and island nations have drawn up strategies to cope with climate change and are also implementing them. This includes the strategies to cope with climate induced disasters and protecting the tourism related infrastructure.

Abstract

One of the factors affecting tourism is the climatic conditions. It could become the attractiveness of tourism destinations, yet it can also interfere the performance of tourism in certain areas. In the last ten years, global climate have been changing, marked by changes in temperature, intensity and distribution of rainfall, wind speeds and patterns, etc. Climate change may impact tourism sector in various countries. Indonesia, as an archipelagic country and one of the world tourism destination, with various attractions, are vulnerable to climate change. One of the tourist destinations most vulnerable to climate change impacts is coastal tourism area. This paper discusses the phenomenon of climate change in Indonesia and the possible impact on coastal tourism from both, supply and demand sides. From the supply side, climate change could impact on coastal natural resource which has become the attraction of the coastal tourism, while from the demand side, climate change can affect the pattern of tourist visits to coastal tourism destinations. Although climate change and its impacts have not been felt by tourists and also managers of local tourism area, adaptation programs need to be proposed. Pangandaran beach tourism area, one of the leading and popular tourist destinations in West Java province, will be the focus of discussion in this paper.

Abstract

Ecotourism is an approach to tourism development to meet the sustainable development initiative globally. In order to meet the sustainability through resource appropriation a clear and well-knitted framework is very essential. The present study made a detailed investigation on destination management with reference to Thenmala Ecotourism Project, India’s first planned ecotourism. Further, it evaluates the competencies of institutional arrangements to meet the policy objectives of ecotourism through SWOT analysis of the destination. The study shows that the destination level framework is (a). Thenmala Ecotourism Promotion Society (TEPS) at the administrative level and (b) community based organizations like Eco Development Committees (EDC) under Forest Development Authority (FDA) and Self Help Groups (SHG) under Kudumbashree Programme at the operational level which have certain operational weakness leading to sustainability failures. Study further suggests for an integrated efforts to revitalize these grass root level institutions.

Abstract

Tourism in general and international tourism in specific as one of the main growing industry in the world has encountered many challenges in recent years. The issues include the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 global diseases like SARS, bird flu and H1N1, and the war in the Middle East as well as years of rising energy prices. Unlike natural diseases or terrorist attacks, climate change is not a short-term apprehension for tourism industry and its effect cannot be quickly forgotten. Climatic change consequences always have serious effects particularly if climate-sensitive tourism has major economic importance for the country. The objective of this paper is to study the impacts of climate change in Malaysia and the adaptation to control the probable decrease of tourist arrivals. The major climate change impacts are loss of natural attractions and species from destinations, increase of flooding risk damage to tourism infrastructure, loss of archaeological assets and other natural resources, increased coral bleaching, marine resource and aesthetics degradation in dive and snorkel destinations, coastal erosion, loss of beach area, and higher costs to protect and maintain waterfronts. The adaptations includes water (management, quality, availability), agriculture, fisheries (food security), energy (supply and distribution), human health (malaria, dengue, asthma), marine and terrestrial biodiversity and infrastructure and settlement.
