Tourism for Sustainable Mountains Development: A Comparative Law Perspective

Research output: Working paper


This contribution aims to assess whether existing mountain laws at the regional and national levels are equipped to ensure environmental protection in regulating and promoting mountain tourism, in the light of relevant guidance provided by the Convention on Biological Diversity. Two major challenges are identified: ensuring the full and effective participation of mountain communities in decision-making related to mountain tourism development, and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising from sustainable mountain tourism.
