Résumé partiel
China’s arid areas lack of water resources,economic development lags behind,but tourism resources have very distinct characteristics.Tourism,as one of the pillar industries,plays an important role in overcoming poverty and maintaining stability in ethnic areas.However,while promoting regional economic development,tourism also increases the demand for water resources in the region,which greatly strengthens the contradiction between supply and demand of water resources in the region.Therefore,how to scientifically measure the water consumption and waste water discharge of tourism and objectively grasp the relationship between tourism water resources and tourism economic development in the region is of great significance for the sustainable utilization of tourism water resources and the coordinated development of tourism in the region.Based on the theory of water footprint,this paper selects Urumqi,Altay,Turpan and Bayinguleng Mongolia Autonomous Prefecture,which belong to arid region in Xinjiang,as the research cases,calculates the tourism water footprint of 4 research cases from the perspective of fresh water,indirect water footprint and grey water footprint.On this basis,it evaluates the utilization of tourism water resources and the pressure of tourism water resources,and analyzes its dynamic changes.Finally,based on tourism water footprint,the decoupling relationship between tourism water footprint and tourism economic growth is analyzed from a single perspective and a comprehensive perspective.The main research contents and conclusions are as follows :(1)According to the theory of water footprint,the tourism water footprint of 4cases from the perspective of fresh water,indirect water footprint and gray water footprint is calculated,and the characteristics of tourism water footprint in 4 cases over10 years are analyzed.The results are as follows :(1)The total amount of tourism water footprint in Urumqi,Altay,Turpan and Bazhou in 2009-2018 is on the rise,which reflects the pressure of various links of tourism activities on local tourism water resources.(2)According to the accounts of tourist water footprint,Urumqi accounts for the largest proportion of food and beverage water footprint,while Altay,Turpan and Bazhou areas account for the largest proportion of shopping water footprint,mainly because Urumqi as a tourist distribution center,the number of tourists,food and beverage links pressure,so the food and beverage water footprint is relatively high,while the other three cases GDP 10,000 yuan high water consumption,the production of dried fruit and other local products consumed more commodity water footprint,so the shopping water footprint is relatively large.
