Nature and Context

Careful coordination of the travel behavior of tourists may reduce congestion, improve their travel experience, improve the quality of the environment, improve the quality of life for the local population, and avoid the many problems with tourists. Establishing a system that mitigates the adverse effects of mass tourism, while respecting the needs of all stakeholders can help build economies and control climate impact.
