Crisis events of various types (e.g., natural disasters, terrorism attacks, pandemics, economic downturns, political instability) can adversely affect the development of tourism destinations in the short to medium term. However, there needs to be more scholarly research on the classification attributes, spatial distribution, and impact structure of global tourism crises and how tourism destinations develop resilience due to these processes. This recommendation is particularly applicable in destinations subject to recurring crises over extended periods. This chapter argues the need for scholarly activity to pay greater attention to multi-crisis destinations. The multi-crisis destination concept is defined with suggestions for developing an index for measuring and classifying multi-crisis destinations. Finally, examples of such destinations are provided and discussed.
