By Ishan Randima
The UNWTO defines Sustainable tourism as, "tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic,social and environmental impacts,addressing the needs of visitors,the industry,the environment and host communities".
Right of future generations to create their future.
Subjective well-being of locals and employees.
Ideal satisfaction of guest needs.
Functioning environmental protection of resources
The future of the tourism depends on protecting life in all its diversity.
It integrates economic and ecological concerns by,for example,"conserving natural areas which,in turn,generates increased revenues from tourism for future conservation"
Davos Process on Tourism and Climate Change, initiated by UNWTO in 2007 is the Organization's climate response framework and outlines a clear commitment to adapt to changing climate conditions, mitigate emissions, apply new technologies and secure financing to assist poorer regions and countries.
SOCIAL EQUITY AND COHESION
Respect for, and understanding of, cultural diversity between nations and peoples is a key principle of sustainable development.
It is a considerable force for the conservation of historic and cultural heritage and, by providing a source of income based around local culture, can encourage communities to value their cultural heritage more highly.
The UNWTO Global Code of Ethics for Tourism is a set of principles intended to guide tourism stakeholders in the development of tourism and raise awareness of specific ethical concerns related to tourism,including gender equality, cultural preservation, corporate social responsibility and the protection of children from exploitation in tourism.Economic prosperity
Tourism is a driver of economic growth,accounting for 5% of global GDP and hundreds of millions of jobs worldwide.
Sustainable tourism actively contributes in poverty reduction by spreading employment opportunities to poverty stricken rural areas.
To this date the UNWTO has implemented over 90 Sustainable Tourism Eliminating Poverty (STEP) projects in more than 30 countries,fostering poverty reduction through tourism development.
DID YOU KNOW ?
UNWTO estimates that international tourit arrivals will reach 1.8 billion by 2030 !
Meeting this growth in a way that mutually reinforces economic growth, social welfare and environmental protection is the challenge facing the tourism sector.
ON A MORE WIDER SCOPE
SUSTAINABLE TOURISM MUST ENSURE
BUT HOW ?
Eco tourism is now defined as "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education" (TIES, 2015). Education is meant to be inclusive of both staff and guests.
Cultural tourism is the subset of tourism concerned with a country or region's culture, specifically the lifestyle of the people in those geographical areas, the history of those people, their art, architecture, religion(s), and other elements that helped shape their way of life.
Medical tourism or health tourism is the travel of people to another country for the purpose of obtaining medical treatment in that country.
Traditionally, people would travel from less developed countries to major medical centers in highly developed countries.
The recent trend is for people to travel from developed countries to third world countries for medical treatments because of cost consideration.
On a more local note,Sri Lanka contributes to this component by providing ayurveda and spa facilities .
Rural tourism focuses on actively participating in a rural lifestyle.
Many rural villages can facilitate tourism because many villagers are hospitable and eager to welcome.
This segment in the tourism industry has been rapidly growing in the past decade, leading to rural tourism becoming not just a good business prospect, but a genuine vacation trend.
Ago-tourism involves any agriculturally based operation or activity that brings visitors to a farm or ranch.
It includes a wide variety of activities, including buying produce direct from a farm stand, navigating a corn maze, picking fruit, feeding animals, or staying at a B&B on a farm.
Sustainable tourism actually benefits everyone involved,unsustainable tourism might be fine from a tourist's view point,but it's unlikely to benefit the host community.
THANK YOU !
WHAT ABOUT SRI LANKA ?
Sri Lanka employs Eco-Tourism to a certain level although there's no active contribution from the so-called stakeholders of sustainable tourism.
Associations like the Sri Lanka Eco-Tourism Foundation has done a massive job in popularizing Eco-Tourism.

Adventure tourism is a type of niche tourism involving exploration or travel to remote areas, where the traveler should expect the unexpected
Adventure tourism is rapidly growing in popularity as tourists seek unusual holidays, different from the typical beach vacation
Mountaineering expeditions, trekking, bungee jumping, rafting and rock climbing are frequently cited as an examples of adventure tourism.

It is a responsible tourist's duty to question,"Which one is locally owned ? Which is more eco-friendly ? Which one employs local people ? Which one is more sensitive to its impact on the host community ? ",When planning a tour.
At the end of the day,tourism should not be a one way street.Everyone involved,specially the stakeholders (visitors,the industry,the environment and host communities) should be directly or indirectly benefited.
