I am presently studying the socio-cultural impacts of tourism on the environment. I understand the impacts which are placed on a community- both positive and negative though I am having trouble separating some of this conflict into what the positive and negative socio-cultural impacts are on our environment. The issues I want help with in regarding the environment, Resources are conflict water and energy uses.
Stress to local environment can as well result from environmental degradation and increased infrastructure costs for local community.
Illustration: High taxes to pay for enhancement to water supply or sanitation facilities.
Conflicts for traditional land uses.
Can you help me better define what the socio impacts of tourism are on the environment. Both positive and negative.
