WHILE TOURISM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO ENHANCE AND PRESERVE THE TANGIBLE AND INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE ON WHICH IT RELIES, IF IT IS NOT MANAGED AND CONTROLLED, IT CAN ALSO DEGRADE AND IRREVERSIBLY DAMAGE THIS VERY SAME VALUABLE RESOURCE. THERE ARE COUNTLESS EXAMPLES OF HOW UNPLANNED TOURISM, ALTHOUGH POTENTIALLY PROFITABLE IN THE SHORT TERM, HAS DAMAGED FRAGILE HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL RESOURCES, THEREBY UNDERMINING THEIR VALUE. IN THE SAME WAY, UNPLANNED TOURISM CAN ERODE A COMMUNITY’S SELF-IMAGE AND CULTURAL VALUES AS WELL. ALTHOUGH TOURISM IS INCREASINGLY RECOGNIZED AS A POTENTIALLY POWERFUL DEVELOPMENT TOOL, SITUATIONS FREQUENTLY ARISE WHERE LOCAL COMMUNITIES ARE SIDE-LINED AND BENEFIT LITTLE FROM THE TOURISM IN THEIR AREA.
