Le tourisme et les réserves de biosphère

[Disponible en anglais uniquement]

Testing improved approaches to tourism development is an aspect of promoting quality economies at a number of the sites in the World Network of Biosphere Reserves. Examples in the Pacific are Utwe and And Atoll (Federated States of Micronesia) and Ngaremeduu (Palau). Further information on approach and on-the-ground activities is given in a booklet 'Tracking the Path of Sustainable Tourism'.

Cross cutting projects linking tourism with environmental issues include an assessment of the impact of the Indian Ocean tsunami of December 2004 on the tourism industry and ecosystems of the Andaman and Nicobar islands (India), with the findings published in Working Paper 36 of the South-South Cooperation Programme.

Among 'pipeline projects' is that on promoting sustainable rural tourism on the island of San Antao in the Cape Verde archipelago.
