This publication provides a collection of material useful to planners and managers of parks and protected areas in East Asia. It has been designed to help them think about the influx of tourism to natural protected areas, and to urge them to consciously plan for management of the interactions of tourists and the natural and cultural environment. General suggestions have been made that each jurisdiction and park can use when developing their own approaches to policy development, funding, implementation and management. Local communities, private tourism operators and land-use planners will also be able to use various sections of this document to assist their practices in being more sustainable
