Tourism is a multitrillion dollar global industry with significant social, economic, and environmental consequences. These include diff use eff ects from international travel and localized eff ects at individual destinations. Most tourism is urban, and its proportional impacts are limited. In contrast, tourism in national parks and remote areas can have high impacts on conservation and communities, depending on details of management.
