IDAD Destinations Cost/ Benefits
Through application of good design principles, most development of destinations can result in positive outcomes for a host community. However, some minimum incentives and disruptions should be recognized as probable outcomes, even with the best design principles. Without good design, the list of incentives will shrink and the list of disruptions will grow. This short comparison should encourage all involved to seek the best sources of destination design.
Keep in mind also, the number of incentives may far exceed the minimum listed here when many factors come together. By most estimations, quality destinations design remains the single best tool for enhancing the economy while protecting natural and cultural resources.
