Methodological Approaches to Analyzing the Sustainability of Rural Tourism Projects Using Elementary Trapezoidal Fuzzy Numbers

There is a variety of motivations for choosing rural tourism in the current socio-economic and technological context. The consumption of tourism services exerts pressure on the environment and rural communities, and these effects need to be managed in a timely manner. Modern principles of the circular economy involve evaluating the sustainability of rural tourism projects from the design stage. This article proposes an analysis of sustainability in relation to natural and anthropic heritage, specific tourism infrastructure, the local community, and the digital society. For analyzing rural tourism projects, the author suggests using elementary trapezoidal fuzzy numbers for decision-making. This tool allows for a systematic approach to this field, taking into account a large number of specific quantitative and qualitative characteristics and evaluating a complex framework of the decision-making problem. Additionally, the paper discusses a numerical case study on the use of elementary trapezoidal fuzzy numbers.
