    Abstract : This chapter discusses the role of communities in the development of rural tourism. Through a representative sample of more developed destination case studies in Europe and North America, the key indicators leading to successful community-based rural tourism are explored. These indicators include innovation in endogenous planning, shared networks, relationship management, informed decision making and support and future-proofing destinations for growing shared wealth and social capital. A framework and working model of community-based tourism, developed to identify good practices in rural communities, is explored.
