The major issues and trends mentioned in the previous chapters are first summarised. The chapter then considers various macro-level projections and recommendations for the broader short-term outlook for cities from a variety of authoritative sources. Near-term projections on travel by tourism scholars and from major tourism bodies are reviewed. Chapter 39 also discusses changing consumer demand preferences as they relate to sustainable urban tourism. The roles of stakeholders are next considered. After distilling the information from all sources, the short-term outlook for sustainable urban tourism is described. It is characterised as a “work in progress” that requires greater focus and resources from governments, practitioners and academic scholars. Positive sustainable development attitudes and actions are detected for all stakeholder groups; however, these are set against the potential detrimental impact of a global recession and other crises.
