Socio-economic effects of tourism in German UNESCO biosphere reserves

This research project aims to calculate the economic effects of tourism in all 17 German UNESCO biosphere reserves. As model regions for sustainable development, biosphere reserves fulfil different purposes. In Germany, biosphere reserves represent typical cultural landscapes lying mostly in rural areas, where they focus on structural challenges of living conditions to arrange them equally for the inhabitants. Tourism plays an important role at this point. It can be seen as an ideal opportunity for the sustainable management and use of natural resources and rural conservation measures. As outdoor recreation areas for tourists, the question is how far nature-based tourism is attributed to influences of this protected area label. The data for the regional economic effect analysis of tourism in Germanys biosphere reserves are collected by on-site face-to-face visitor surveys. They record the number and structure of tourism (day-tripper vs. overnight visitor) and the tourist expenditures by economic sectors as well as the affinity with the biosphere reserve label. Overall, this gives the opportunity for a comparative evaluation of the regional economic effects of nature-based tourism for protected areas in Germany.

Analysis of potential effects of nature-based tourism in the Black Forest biosphere reserve

This research project aims to calculate the effects of nature-based tourism in the UNESCO Black Forest biosphere reserve in southern Germany. It is a unique possibility in Germany to analyze the actual state of nature-based tourism in a newly designated biosphere reserve without the influences of designation of the protected area label. In the spirit of monitoring the economic effects of biosphere reserves in Germany, a ten-year follow-up study could clearly outline the positive or negative changes in the regional economy due to the designation of this biosphere reserve. Furthermore, the chair of Geography and Regional Science already investigated the effects of nature-based tourism in the nearby and also newly designated Black Forest National Park. This gives the opportunity for a comparative evaluation of the two protected area labels: national park and biosphere reserve.
