Pemahaman ini juga penting kepada pihak kerajaan dalam merancang pembangunan pelancongan dan membuat keputusan. Sejak tahun 1990-an, kesan pembangunan pelancongan telah berkembang pesat terutamanya dalam spektrum pulau-pulau dan taman laut. Memandangkan kebanyakan pulau-pulau di Malaysia mempunyai tarikan semula jadi yang tersendiri, maka lebih banyak pulau-pulau semakin maju sebagai tempat tarikan pelancong. Walau bagaimanapun, pembangunan pelancongan yang tidak sesuai boleh menyebabkan berlakunya impak sosial yang buruk di pulau-pulau, termasuk mendedahkan masyarakat setempat kepada gelagat pelancong asing yang mungkin bertentangan dengan budaya atau nilai kemasyarakatan. Kajian ini mengkaji impak sosial (positif dan negatif) terhadap masyarakat setempat di Mukim Kedawang, Pulau Langkawi.
