Beyond Consensus

This chapter demonstrates the significance of collaboration between political leadership and the public in dealing with environmental challenges resulting from tourism, which is demonstrated through the examples of the Lower Wisconsin River in the United States and Trinity Inlet in Cairns, Australia. These two places have emerged as popular tourist destinations, leading to significant increases in prosperity for every section of society and generating significant environmental challenges from increased levels of human activities. Collaboration involves an engagement of various independent stakeholders in building a consensus to produce the required outcomes. Lower Wisconsin River and Trinity Inlet are also examples of the challenges and failures in changing a consensus into a continuous process of delivering the desired results.
