Managing and co-ordinating tourism in a destination requires the organisation and co-operation of a large number of sectors, businesses, local authorities and individuals. Since tourism is an important driver in many economies, destination governance in tourist destinations needs to be done well, to achieve economic aims and maintain sufficient infrastructure. This book provides a guide to the theoretical and methodological understanding of how to implement best practice governance procedures, with case studies illustrating good performance. It is suitable for researchers and students in tourism and leisure studies
