The previous chapter addressed frameworks and regulations that support the move towards sustainable tourism. On their own however, these are not enough. First, they need ‘buy-in’ from the people who will be affected by them, the stakeholders on the ground. Second, they may not always be fully supported by politicians and governors, who can overturn policies at different opportunities. We don’t need to think any further than US President Trump making a shock statement on June 1 2017 that his country would withdraw from the Paris Agreement, jeopardising the whole process, as the US is one of the largest producers of GHG emissions.
