The development of sustainable tourism models has been widely discussed in the economic literature. If on the one hand the demand for tourism has grown in recent years, on the other it is necessary to have adequate planning and political tools. The problems of sustainable tourism appear more complex when sustainable tourism involves development opportunities that require the support of the local community and the management of natural resources which are generally common goods. In these circumstances, new management structures need to be created, which can both meet the needs of the local community and ensure adequate management of natural resources. This study analyzes the connections between sustainable tourism models and natural resource management considering the case of the forest landscape. The study highlights how the correct management of public goods can lead, on the one hand, to satisfying demand and, on the other hand, creating opportunities for sustainable development of the environment.
