Abstract: The primary purpose of this study is to identify a link concerning tourism, economic growth, and environmental protection in developing countries. The current research looks at the overall state of emerging economies. The study employs the 3SLS technique. Tourism is attracted by economic prosperity, and tourism will increase economic growth. According to the findings, economic growth hurts the environment. At the same time, environmental degradation decreases economic growth. As income activity accelerates, environmental emissions have a detrimental impact on economic growth. Further findings imply that tourism adversely affects the environment, increasing tourism and causing a depreciation of the ecosystem. The environment impacts tourism, as most people travel to other countries for business and religious reasons. In all models, the other variables, like political instability, has a negative effect on tourism, while trade has a favorable effect. According to the study, GDP is boosted by the literacy rate and gross capital formation and population increase, urbanization, and energy use all have a favorable impact on CO2 emissions. According to the findings, host nations should encourage tourism and guarantee that the environment is not harmed; therefore, eco-friendly must be pushed to maintain a seamless and sustainable development process.
