Tourism Risk Management – An Authoritative Guide to Managing Crises in Tourism

Comments Off on Tourism Risk Management – An Authoritative Guide to Managing Crises in Tourism

The purpose of this guide is to provide tourism industry members in Asia, the Pacific and beyond with an authoritative guide to risk management. Importantly, the generic risk management process has been adapted to the specific needs of tourism. The guide provides a practical framework within which tourism destinations can identify, analyse, evaluate, treat, monitor and review risks in the tourism context. Although the tourism risk management process has been developed for destinations, the same principles also apply to a tourism business or organization and can easily be adapted for their purposes.

Throughout this guide there are two fundamental roles for tourism in risk management: the first of these is as a partner with government and community agencies in the development of multi-agency, coordinated disaster management plans, systems, procedures and processes which include the needs of tourism; the second is to develop plans and procedures appropriate to a destination and to the specific roles and responsibilities of an organization, to train personnel to those plans, and to conduct regular tests of plans, procedures and personnel with subsequent amendment and update.

The Tourism Satellite Accounts 2007-08 Summary Spreadsheets provide each of Australia’s states and territories with comprehensive data on the economic impacts of visitor expenditure on their economies. The research has been undertaken by STCRC to help inform policy and planning initiatives for the three tiers of government and provide data for tourism industry representative bodies and tourism operators to support decisions in the areas of industry investment, advocacy, marketing, education and training. The Economic Contribution of Tourism to Australian States and Territories 2007–08 presents an overview of the economic impacts of visitor expenditure on state and territory economies as estimated in STCRC’s Tourism Satellite Accounts 2007–08. This document is intended to provide a ‘plain language’ simplified explanation of tourism’s economic contribution to Australia’s states and territories for the period 2007–08.
