TOURISM AND SENSITIVE AREAS

What are sensitive areas?

Ecologically sensitive areas are those where natural resources are critically endangered by physical changes, for example coral reefs, coastal areas, and high-biodiversity inland areas. In such areas the following three basic principles of the Convention on Biodiversity apply:

 

  • Conservation of biological diversity

  • Sustainable use

  • Equitable sharing of benefits among local community and indigenous people

 

Tourism and sensitive areas

Many sensitive areas attract tourism because of their exceptional features such as beautiful landscapes or unique ecologies. Such areas hold the main assets on which the tourism industry depends, so conservation is a must.

UNEP strongly believes that tourism can make a contribution to their protection, through financial contributions, provision of environmental infrastructure, improved management, awareness raising and education on tourist behavior in a natural environment, and by the creation of protected areas, national parks, cultural and natural sites.

For further sources of information on the relationship between tourism and sensitive areas, please refer to UNEP.net, which provides environmental data and compiles information from different scientific institutions to develop comprehensive solutions to specific environmental challenges.

 

Background information on the subject can also be found on the web sites of the Convention on Biological Diversity, The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, and the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development.

Publications

"Awards for Improving coastal environment" (Blue Flag), a publication by UNEP, the Foundation for Environmental Education in Europe (FEEE) and the World Tourism Organization (WTO).
