Abstract: Abstract: This paper establishes an ecotourism model to analyze the role of local residents and government in achieving sustainable development. By incorporating into the model the properties of common-pool resources to which the tourism activities are linked, we prove that ecotourism does not guarantee sustainable development for a rural area unless it is accompanied by suitable policies of reducing firm numbers and/or the levying of a tourist tax. More specifically, we find two stable equilibria: one characterized by low or even a zero level of natural resources, and the other has a high level of natural resources. In low equilibrium, the extinction or zero stock of natural resources occurs under open access of zero transport cost and marginal environmental maintenance cost. High equilibrium corresponds to greater social welfare, which can be guaranteed through policies of a tourist tax, license fee, limiting the number of firms, and restrictions on the population of potential tourists. More importantly, we prove that although high equilibrium is better than low equilibrium, it may not be socially optimal. The maximum welfare can only be achieved by a direct tax on tourists and not solely by policies controlling the number of firms.
