This Quick Guide, in the style of the series under the Programme of Work on Protected Areas of the Convention on Biological Diversity, introduces a tourism management framework called the “threshold of sustainability.” It is designed to enable managers to take rapid action to mitigate the most critical threats related to tourism, while beginning to lay a solid financial foundation for tourism within protected areas. By improving tourism management, protected area planners will simultaneously achieve many of the actions included in the Convention on Biological Diversity’s Programme of Work on Protected Areas, including preventing and mitigating protected area threats, using protected area benefits to reduce poverty, developing sustainable finance mechanisms, strengthening management capacity, and improving overall management effectiveness.
