Abstract

With the increase in population in recent years in Mysuru, and the ever increasing tourist inflow to the city of unique cultural and historical heritage, the concern of resources has seldom crossed the mind of an individual. This study addresses the problems that arises due to the ever increase in tourist inflow and what impact it has on the resources. The following parameters such as LWC (land required for water consumption), Carrying capacity and Waste assimilative capacity are targeted in this report. The study examined the ecological resource use of tourists and the industry that supports and exploits this resource use by using the Ecological footprint as a tool. The study has been more of causal relationship between the tourism and Ecological Foot Print (EFT) at local scale. The research questions which were the basis of the objective of the present study were how the tourism industry can become more ecologically sustainable, specific types of tourist behaviours and tourism infrastructure that are particularly unsustainable. The study concluded that there is need for the accommodation facilities to leverage their and community partners to create positive environmental opportunities, aim cost savings in waste to landfill to reduce ecological tourism foot print size. The study also looks into the use of Digital Footprint to assess the Ecological Footprint of Tourism.
