Sustainable development of the tourism industry: environmental and statistical dimension

Vasyl Brych, Natalia Galysh


Introduction. Tourism is an important area of socio-economic activity and makes a significant contribution to the state budget revenues of many countries.

The growing importance of tourism and the exacerbation of problems associated with its development, make us talk about the need for change and the search for new vectors of development. This has led to numerous attempts to adapt the main provisions and principles of the concept of sustainable development in the context of the functioning of tourism. It should be noted that the first attempt to define sustainable tourism was made in 1988 by the World Tourism Organization. Sustainable tourism was seen as a direction that leads to the management of all resources in such a way that economic, social and aesthetic needs can be met while preserving cultural identity, basic environmental processes, biodiversity and life support systems.

Goal. The purpose of the study is to introduce aspects of sustainable development of tourism as a purposeful influence on the processes of formation and maintenance of the tourist and recreational environment in the interests of society.

Method (methodology). The methodological basis of the study were interdisciplinary and systematic approaches to the study of the functioning of the tourism industry.

Results. This article reveals the features of the tourism industry from the standpoint of sustainable development.
