The establishment and development concept of education in the field of tourism at the Department of Geography, Faculty of Science, University of Sarajevo is primarily based on the strategic macroeconomic commitment of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as its entities and cantons for economically functional and environmentally optimal valorization of existing natural and social resources in the function of intensification of economic development. In that regard, in all general and sectoral development strategies adopted at the national, entity and cantonal levels in the period since 2000, tourism is recognized as one of the strategic economic branches of sustainable development of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The incorporation of tourism as a developmental economic branch has for the first time been more visibly formalized through the development of entity spatial plans as strategic documents of the primary level that define the manner and forms of valorization of natural and social resources for tourism development.
