Towards a Conceptual Model for the Sustainable use of Tourism Resources
In our previous paper titled "Towards a Conceptual Model for the Sustainable use of Tourism Resources" we have outlined the dimension of conceptual model for the sustainability resources. This Model was applied to Egyptian Tourism Resources. In this paper, we aim to Include Macro Independent Variables that are expected to explain the variance in the dependent variable, i.e. the sustainable use of resources. This aims to enhance the applicability and empirical value of the model. Hence, we will test the effect of macro dimensions of the sustainable use of tourism resources. These macro variables involve socio-cultural, institutional, Organizational and economic dimension. The data is collected by personal interviews using a pre-test questionnaire is coded and the data is statistically analyzed by applying multi-variables parametric statistical analysis techniques.
