A mathematical analysis for the forecast research on tourism carrying capacity to promote the effective and sustainable development of tourism

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Figure(5) Related Papers Cited by
  • With the continuous and quick development of Chinese tourism industry over years, ecological environmental problems emerge consequently. The contradiction between the development of tourism economy and the protection of ecological environment has become the focus of scientific experts and Chinese government, and accordingly it is of vital importance to predict tourism carrying capacity accurately. In this paper, a new forecast approach is proposed for government staff and scenic spot management staff on tourist carrying capacity, which promotes the effective, healthy and sustainable development of the tourism country.
