    Abstract

    The viability of regional and rural communities depends on embracing new and innovative solutions to development strategies to build social, cultural, political and economic capital. Tourism is often touted as an industry that can serve this purpose. In this paper we outline some of the issues facing researchers and policy makers in this context along with some of the lessons learned about the tourism system in regional areas. Innovation in tourism development relies on and can contribute to social, political and cultural capital (SPCC) while improving the economic base of the area.
