Andriotis, Konstantinos ORCID logoORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0003-0960-0216 (2007) A framework for the tourism planning process. In: Sustainability, profitability and successful tourism. Aparna, Raj, ed. Kanishka Publishers, New Delhi. ISBN 9788173919190. [Book Section]


Although many authors have examined various aspects of general planning, a literature review of tourism shows that, with few exceptions, not many authors have been concerned with tourism planning. Bearing in mind past research negligence, this paper was written with the aim to investigate the planning process in the case of tourism, by providing a framework whereby tourism planning processes might be better described and explained, and applying this framework in the case of Greece. The findings of the study confirm that the proposed framework can be used as a mechanism for present and future problem-solving orientations of tourism planning, as a tool to provide a balance between the positive and negative effects of tourism, and as a basis for planners to evaluate whether or not the objectives of tourism planning have been fulfilled.
