Discuss about the Academic Literacy Through Sustainability.
Sustainability is a process characterized by the pursuit of a common ideal. The sustainable development goals relate to economic development, social development, and environmental protection. The essay scenario ‘ensuring tourism is sustainable' relates to the three pillars because tourism also has its share of problems like social dislocation, loss of cultural heritage, ecological degradation and economic independence. These problems in tourism can be addressed through the three pillars of sustainability. Environmental problems in tourism can be addressed by ensuring environment protection through various forms of culture-based tourism and cultural tourism. Sustainable tourism focuses both on socio-cultural heritage and the environment to promote tourist places. Many coastal areas experience pressure due to growing number of tourist and coastal environment experience detrimental impacts of tourism. So, sustainable tourism will mainly focus on maintaining complete viability and health of ecosystem despite tourism activities (Edgell Sr et al., 2016).
Therefore economic development in tourism must be prioritized to achieve sustainable solution. The role of tourism in sustainable economic development is essential because significant losses occur due to a natural disaster in tourist places. Unplanned and uncontrolled tourism activity also results in deterioration of the environment and a significant expense to the tourism industry. Thus economic develop should involve expenditure in the protection of the environment as the environment is the major source of tourist products. Ensuring sustainable tourism is an approach to permanents solutions to solve problems in tourism industry. Sustainable development in tourism involves the optimum use of resources like biological diversity but minimizing the ecological, cultural and social problem by prioritizing economic development (Buckley, 2012).
