As identified in the ‘Local Government Pathways to Sustainable Tourism’ toolkit developed by the Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre, the development of a regional governance map can assist in understanding the tourism planning framework in which a destination operates. A governance map helps to identify linkages between stakeholders, decision-making and governance structures and the plans and policies at a National, State and Local level that will impact on the strategic planning for tourism in a destination. An example of a governance map is provided below.
