    1. The positive impacts of tourism is that it creates infrastructure and a flow of money to the community in the form of investments, as well as it decreased unemployment rates by creating more jobs in the tourism sector of the economy.
    2. The negative impacts of tourism are related to the fact that tourism is a business as all the other industries. It generates wastes due to urge of the local companies to maximize their profit by exploiting natural and other resources.
    3. It can be done through economical-environmental outreach and enforcing global policies that are oriented on environmental sustainability.
    4. The local community may stop dumping wastes and collaborate with the outreach program. It should also be informed that the more it invests into sustainability and reduction of pollution, the more appealing becomes the area what brings more tourists and investment flow.
