Tourism in the Pacific is driven by the access to its unique natural environment – from pristine beaches to tropical forests. The sustainability of this industry relies on the delicate balance between the economic exploitation of the environment for leisure, the preservation of ecosystems from pollution, warming and biodiversity impoverishment linked to tourism infrastructure construction and use, and the controlled exploitation of stocks of natural resource, like fresh water, arable land or forests.
Challenge: Learn to use experimental water, waste and energy accounts to guide how tourism should be supported in small Pacific island states.
