Tourism Ecocertification in the International Year of Ecotourism
MetadataShow full item record
Ecocertification and accreditation were hot topics for corridor discussion at the World Ecotourism Summit (WES) in Quebec in May 2002. The issue appears to have become quite politicised. Here, therefore, is an attempt to summarise recent events and, to some degree at least, to deconstruct their political context. There's a degree of secrecy, with some critical technical and financial information not yet available to the public. The comments below are based on public information. In some cases I have also identified where further information should be available and may possibly become public in due course.
