Abstract

The article outlines main directions of resource use in the mountainous united territorial communities of Ivano-Frankivsk region. Tourism among other sectors of economy is a priority one, since it can rely on strong natural, historical and cultural potential combined with preserved ethnic traditions and traditional crafts in the studied region. The present state and problems of decentralization in Ukraine were studied. One of the problems of newly created territorial communities is the lack of methodological tools for the integrated use of tourist potential of the territories. The authors proposed an algorithm for developing the proposals for the tourism development within the local territorial communities. The tourism development is resulting in the appearance of new environmental threats within tourist destinations. The authors analyzed the features of tourism impact on the environment in the mountainous united territorial communities. The main environmental impacts of tourist destinations are changes in primary landscapes, water pollution, air pollution, and waste management. The article studied the problem of waste management in mountainous tourist destinations. The method of calculating the amount of waste generated by tourists and excursionists within tourist destinations was improved. Calculated amounts of waste generated by tourists and excursionists within united territorial communities of the mountainous districts of Ivano-Frankivsk region confirmed tourists' impact on the waste problem within the UTCs. Among the analyzed UTCs the problem of waste generation by tourists and excursionists is the most relevant in the united territorial communities of the Yaremche City Council, Dolyna and Kolomyia districts. High indicators of waste generation by tourists and excursionists further complicate the problem of waste management which was planned without taking into account the possible impact of tourists. Such circumstance aggravates the problem of waste management programs development within UTCs. The methodological approaches to the formation of waste management programs within the UTCs were proposed.
