From the Paper:

"Environmental conservation concerns constitute one of the major issues in the world today. Various world organizations such as the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) have been advocating for environmental conservation through sensitizing and educating the public and organizations to pursue strategies that do not threaten the ecosystem. In the tourism sector concepts such as the ecotourism and sustainable tourism have been popularized with a view to encourage tourist organizations, governments, tourists themselves and the general public to uphold environmental conservation measures in the practice of tourism (Wilson, 2010). This has been motivated by the centrality of contributions that tourism makes in the global economy. According to the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP), tourism provided approximately 8.1 percent employment opportunities either directly or indirectly besides contributing approximately 10.4 percent to the gross domestic product of the world. These significant contributions of tourism sector to the global economy have therefore seen increased efforts by the World Tourism Organization in conjunction with UNEP towards development and implementation of sustainability strategies in the tourism industry. As such, the United Nations has established pillars of sustainable tourism which include long term enhancing of a tourism location economic viability, socio-cultural aspects strengthening, and environmental preservation (UNEP, 2007)."
