Ecotourism is a major source for financing ecological environmental development. The fundamental challenge of this globally persued approach is how to unite the conflicting goals of ecotourism and nature conservation. The World Bank has co-financed a model project in Jordan. Landscape architecture took a leading role in the masterplanning. This book documents the results and gives an account of the lessons to be learnt.
