Abstract
There are many good practice examples in sustainable tourism, but the difficulty is how they can be transparently measured, monitored and disseminated. The study aims to develop a measurement system for good practice in sustainable tourism, meanwhile to make some contribution to the monitoring and reporting system. In order to accomplish this, the thesis allocates good practice examples into a Sustainable Tourism Research Framework and proposes a model assessment procedure by using the Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria. During the research studying course, samples selection was conducted, followed by the assortment of the selected good practice examples into the research framework, by which good practices can be monitored through the...

There are many good practice examples in sustainable tourism, but the difficulty is how they can be transparently measured, monitored and disseminated. The study aims to develop a measurement system for good practice in sustainable tourism, meanwhile to make some contribution to the monitoring and reporting system. In order to accomplish this, the thesis allocates good practice examples into a Sustainable Tourism Research Framework and proposes a model assessment procedure by using the Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria. During the research studying course, samples selection was conducted, followed by the assortment of the selected good practice examples into the research framework, by which good practices can be monitored through the huge research framework as a network and platform. To further measure and monitor these in sustainable tourism, it requires a model assessment procedure to provide a standard process for evaluating and assessing the tourism sustainability. Hence a nine steps’ procedure is developed based on the previous assessment research studies. (Less)
