The tourist industry is one of the most important economic activities in Greece. The country receives over 32 million visitors per year. Greece has enjoyed increasing numbers and revenues from tourism due to the unique environment both natural and man-made making it a high profile tourist destination. However, it is already clear, that the uncontrolled growth of the industry may bring serious environmental and social problems, leading to a decline in the quality of tourist product and services provided. The issue of sustainable tourism development is related to economic, social, environmental indicators. The Prokopiou Thesis is an integrated assessment study for environmental coastal zone management and tourism industry.
