Ecotourism is a term debated upon by practitioners all over the world. The initiatives carried out in the name of ecotourism have adversely affected people and the environment. The indigenous and local communities have raised voices against such steps at local, national and international levels. However, sustainable ecotourism – tourism carried out within certain defined norms, can lead to the development of the people. Ecotourism Development in India attempts to present a comprehensive and analytical perspective on the development of ecotourism in India . This book showcases the key policies and legal frameworks linked to ecotourism development at national and international levels. The consequences of large-scale models of ecotourism in terms of responses and impacts, both negative and positive, are presented through select case studies. It is intended to facilitate effective formulation and implementation of conservation and development policies and practices.
