In contrast to ecotourism however, sustainability of this use or experience is not taken into account.
Commerce Commerce deals specifically with the tourism aspect of ecotourism and is the often neglected underpin to the sustainability of ecotourism.

Community People are at the heart of any sustainable business or endeavour. Further complicating this analysis are the interrelationships of the various parts of the environment that might be impacted by the chosen course of action.
