Effective Decisions – Data and People Making sound decisions often benefits by having relevant support from BI/Analytics. With that said, human behavior comes into play as well. What about the impact of conflict in reaching an effective decision? Do you think conflict is a problem when making decisions? Why or why not? Conversely, if everyone involved is stating their agreement with a decision does that mean the best decision has been made? Why or why not?
Ecotourism is a popular form of ‘new tourism’. Both Belize and Costa Rica are promoted as ‘ecotourists’ destinations. Do you agree with this characterization? Drawing on specific examples from these two countries(as presented in the textbook and lectures), write an essay that makes an argument about whether or not they are true ‘ecotourist’ destinations and why (or why not). Your essay should include/consider(not necessarily in this order):•A definition of ‘ecotourism’;•The positive and negative impacts of different forms of tourism in these two destinations, including ecological, socio-cultural, and economic impacts;•The roles played by different actors to support or undermine ecotourism in each of these destinations (including supranational institutions, government, industry, tourists, NGOs, and host communities);and•What these two destinations tell us about the opportunities and limitations of implementing ecotourism in practice
