this is the subject of what the essay needs to be about.
Destinations wanting to promote sustainable tourism are more likely to be successful when there is effective governance…….But in practice there are substantial difficulties that can hinder effective governance for sustainable tourism” (Bramwell, 2011:461).
Critically evaluate this statement and further consider how and why destinations should overcome these difficulties and seek to achieve a sustainable tourism destination through effective governance and tourism policies. In the broader context of critiquing sustainable tourism and its success ensure you use examples of both developing and developed destinations.
