Resilience planning as an opportunity for future sustainable development in tourism


  • Matylda Awedyk
  • Agnieszka Niezgoda


Sustainable development is a theoretical concept, but the possibility of implementing it depends on skills and practical solutions. One practical solution is interdisciplinary planning. The basic criterion for the success of interdisciplinary planning and improvements in its quality and efficiency is continuous expansion of knowledge related to its role, the methods, tasks and responsibilities involved and experience gained. This can be considered as a necessary step in the further evolution of interdisciplinary planning. Taking these aspects into account, it could be claimed that interdisciplinary has become a principal condition for the existence of good planning. The aim of this article is to indicate the need for new resilience planning techniques relevant to the implementation of sustainable development, which include, among other things, scenario planning. According to the authors, this concept requires a resilient approach to developing future strategies for more dynamic activities in regions attracting a high number of tourists. In the empirical part, a case study is presented. Based on an analysis of the Development Strategy for Tourism in the Wielkopolska Region until 2020, missing elements are identified from the point of view of sustainable development. Despite references to sustainable development, neither resilience planning nor scenario planning were used.
