INTRODUCTION
This report aim is to develop the understanding of sustainable tourism, its promotion
and the way in which it can be accomplished. The particular concept is effectively explained
by completing several tasks related to sustainable tourism development planning in the
destination. The main part is focused on Scuba diving with the project of marine conservation
and its implications on the locals of country. Moreover, the tourism activities at the coastal
and rural places of Philippines is discussed for analysing the development needs of
sustainable tourism at the region. The sustainable tourism is the execution of sustainability
framework for reducing the environmental, economic and social influences of tourism on the
heritage, communities and culture of the destination.
TASK 1
1.1 How stakeholders can benefit from tourism developments planning in Philippines
Stakeholders are those people or group of people, who are affected by the achievement
of an organization’s objective. As far as tourism is concern, the local authorities, tourism
professionals, media and all the people associated with the tourism industry can be regarded
as stakeholders. The general public or the residents of Philippines should also be considered
as stakeholders as they are, if not directly, affected by tourism indirectly. Tourism
development planning is beneficial for all the stakeholders as it boost the economy.
Philippines attract tourists from all over the world. Planning of a new project or development
of a new tourist destination can attract many more tourists. These tourists bring valuable
foreign exchange with them. This foreign exchange stands crucial for the calculation of Gross
Domestic Product (GDP) which is an indicator of economic growth of a nation (Alampay,
2005).
Development of tourism can have a positive impact on the people residing around the
tourist destination. Tourism helps in raising their standards of living. It also brings
employment opportunities to the local residents, especially those who live around the
developing or developed destination. There are a lot of local authorities working for the
conservation of nature. Planned and sustainable development of tourism will protect the
nature and its resources, thereby easing the work of these authorities. The development of a
particular project will enhance the infrastructure facilities in the country. Development in
tourism will strengthen the local hospitability sector and will increase the number of hotels
and restaurants in the country. It will also boost the local travel sector and industries and will
generate employment opportunities amongst local residents (Añasco and Lizada, 2014).

1.2 Advantages and disadvantages of public/private sector tourism planning partnerships
For the effective execution of Scuba Diving with marine conservation project, it is very
important that the private and public sector work in partnership. The successful
implementation of the project can only be achieved by the coordination amongst both the
sectors. There are undoubtedly many advantages of private and public sector working
together, but with these advantages there are certain disadvantages as well (Aronsson, 2000).
The advantages and disadvantages arising out of the partnership of private and public sector
are discussed here under:
Advantages
Both the sectors have their own resources. Some of these resources are common,
while the others are unique. Working in partnership will bring all the resources
together. The use of each other’s resources will enhance the performance of both the
sectors. This will increase the rate of achievement of the objectives of the project
which is undertaken by both the sectors in partnership.
When both the sectors will work together, the cost will decline drastically. There are
usually higher costs associated with the public sector, as there is no or limited check
on their working. The involvement of private sector will put check on the extra
spending done by the public sector which will eventually cut the cost of the project
(Chambers, 2009).
Public private sector partnership will reduce the incidence of trespassing and violation
of laws. When private sector works, it neglects the law of the land, to accomplish its
objectives. The involvement of public sector will abide the private sector to follow all
the laws and regulations while completing the task.
Corruption is the major factors which affects the cost and completion of work taken
up by the public sector. The presence of private sector will restrict the level of
corruption and will result in reduction of cost and time in completion of the project.
With the aid of public sector, the sanctions are easily available and other regulatory
works are smoothly done, reducing the completion time of the project (Choi and
Sirakaya, 2005).
Disadvantages The coordination of both the sectors is very important for the success of the project. If
there is lack of coordination amongst both the sectors, it could have an adverse effect
on the project. It will lead to extra cost and unnecessary delay in the completion.
