sustainable tourism

The goal of this research line is to study tourism from a complexity point of view, focusing on sustainable relationships. We model interactions among tourists and local populations as well as decision-making processes for tourists to choose their destinations and accommodation listings.


We analyze sustainable tourism through the application of rewarding policies to the asymmetric evolutionary games, where tourists and stakeholders spatially interact, and where tourists can also migrate. The incentives of the rewarding policies have an economic budget which can be allocated to tourists, to stakeholders, or to both sub-populations. Our results show that an adaptive rewarding strategy is generally more effective than simple rewarding strategies that are exclusively focused on one sub-population of stakeholders.
