120145Tourism Disasters, Crises and the Risk-Fear Nexus: Tourists’ Perceptions of Durban as a Tourism DestinationTaemane Phoofolo2019Tourism is an important economic sector in many countries worldwide. Many governments are placing a higher priority on tourism development because it leads to increased foreign exchange income and creates employment opportunities. However, the tourism sector is prone to both natural (floods, drought, diseases) and man-made (crime, unemployment, poverty, war, terrorism) disasters, crises and risks which invariably affect not only the tourists but the functionality, sustainability and competitiveness of a destination. The cumulative impact of disasters, crises and risks can result in the death of people, destruction of fauna and flora, displacement and suffering of people. Other effects include, the destruction of human settlements, physical infrastructure such as roads, railway lines and habitats of animals. The prevalence of disasters, crises and the risk can affect tourists’ travelling patterns and destination choices. Thus, rendering some places unsafe and unattractive.University of KwaZulu-NatalThesisN4FUYHAX2DSF-245590710-932022/02/08 09:54:19TOURISM DISASTERS, CRISES AND THE RISK-FEAR NEXUS TOURISTS’ PERCEPTIONS OF DURBAN AS A TOURISM A DISSERTATION SUBMITTED IN FULFILMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS I would like to thank the http://sp19prd01:8100/ResearchRepo/Shared Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspxpdfFalsepdf
137165Local Community Participation in Coastal Tourism- Experiences from Nonoti Beach in KwaZulu-NatalNtshekane Goodness Gumede2018This study investigates the extent to which the rural community of Nonoti Beach participates in coastal tourism taking place in their ancestral land. During the apartheid era, this community was forcibly removed to make way for agriculture and the area was later identified for tourism development. After 1994, the first democratic government of South Africa made it its priority to restore the displaced communities back to their land through land reform and redistribution, and the community under study is one of the communities that received land through the land claims process. Fourteen years after the settlement was made on this land claim in favour of the community, but the government and other stakeholders with vested interest in coastal tourism have not delivered on the promise made to the local community to provide them with low cost housing and to develop a coastal resort that was to benefit this community through profit sharing and in other ways.University of KwaZulu-NatalThesisN4FUYHAX2DSF-245590710-842019/03/05 12:26:46LOCAL COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION IN COASTAL TOURISM: EXPERIENCES FROM NONOTI BEACH IN KWAZULU-NATAL THIS THESIS IS SUBMITTED IN FULFILLMENT OF A DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY (PhD http://sp19prd01:8100/ResearchRepo/Shared Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspxpdfFalsepdf
137458The Impact of Events on Sustainable Tourism Development in Durban- An Evidence-Based EnquiryEkundayo Ilesanmi Mejabi2018Sustainability has become one of the key elements of development for most tourist destinations. Some cities have adopted a sustainable development strategy as a long-term solution in improving socio-economic, cultural, and environmental practices. Traditionally, destinations have used events to achieve community enrichment, protect the natural environment, and create or maintain national pride. The aim of this research was to analyse the impact of events on sustainable tourism development in Durban. This research focused on the event tourism sector and its impact on the economy, environment, politics and the socio-cultural being of the host community. The objectives were to discuss the role of events in profiling a destination and the extent to which they could serve as catalyst for repeat visitation; the study sought to analyse the perceptions of key stakeholders regarding the contribution of events to socio-economic growth of the City.University of KwaZulu-NatalThesisN4FUYHAX2DSF-245590710-832019/03/05 12:31:22The Impact of Events on Sustainable Tourism Development in Durban: An Evidence-Based Enquiry Submitted in fulfilment of the academic requirements for the degree of Doctor of http://sp19prd01:8100/ResearchRepo/Shared Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspxpdfFalsepdf
