Abstract


Tourism is often considered as one of the fastest growing sectors in the world. It has a distinctive role in industrial growth and regional development. However, unscientific planning and development cause severe repercussions in the life of communities live in destinations. It produces conflict between local community and industry. In order to strike a balance between growth of tourism and community development, positive interventions from the industry seems a need of the hour. This study proposes a frame work for the industry to practice responsible tourism with a goal of achieving sustainable destination management.
