National Geographic Resource


From Marcus L Endicott of the Green-Travel Network:

National Geographic Center for Sustainable Destinations

Part of the Research, Conservation, and Exploration division of
National Geographic Mission Programs, the Center for Sustainable
Destinations (CSD) is dedicated to protecting all the world's
distinctive places through wisely managed tourism and enlightened
destination stewardship. The core strategy for achieving this mission
is geotourism, defined as tourism that sustains or enhances the
geographical character of a place—its environment, culture, aesthetics,
heritage, and the well-being of its residents. Working with many allied
organizations, both global and local, CSD helps develop and disseminate
information for adopting the geotourism approach—by destination
communities, by tourism professionals, and by travelers themselves.
