    Abstract

    The first volume of this manual series introduces the concept of ecotourism, presents the key players and gives an overview of their roles in ecotourism planning and development. Most chapters contain illustrative examples in shaded boxes. These describe how the concepts discussed in the chapter are manifested in real cases. Chapter 1 provides a brief description of how and why ecotourism has evolved and what it means. The broadly accepted definition of ecotourism is presented along with definitions of other terms related to ecotourism. Chapter 2 is a description of the various players involved in ecotourism management and development. Chapter 3 describes the roles of protected areas and their managers in ecotourism management and development. An overview of the role that communities play in ecotourism management and development is found in Chapter 4, while Chapter 5 describes the role that NGOs play in ecotourism management and development related to protected areas. Chapter 6 is a brief introduction to the tourism industry, its structure, and its role in ecotourism development.
