This unit provides an expansion and application to the tourism policy and planning process, approaches, decisions and implications. Through our individual and collective experiences, this unit will develop an understanding of tourism policy and planning that will enable new interpretations of how tourism can be prepared for at national, local and organisational levels. The main areas covered include tourism policy inclusion, climate change policy and planning, tourism protected resource policy and planning, and macro to micro tourism planning contexts.


The learning goals associated with this unit are to:

  1. analyse and synthesise tourism policy inclusion processes
