Ten Year Survey (Preliminary Results 05.2012)


How do you characterize ecotourism in the country where you live? Provide examples of best or worst practices.
The tourism sector in Spain is a highly rigid (sun and beach) taken over by multinationals of tourism, there are local initiatives increasingly active tourism developed in a natural environment. Our company is a travel agency specializing in responsible tourism, we are a leading company in Spain TR in this type of tourism that combines elements of environmental, socio-cultural and economic

Sustainable tourism to natural areas, conserving the environment, contributing to local nature and culture, benefitting and involving local communities, and allowing exchanges between hosts and guests. My best known example is Cristalino Jungle Lodge, the worst Ariau Jungle Lodge, both in Brazil.

On a scale of 1-5 (1 being the least and 5 being the most) how well do you think indigenous people are involved in the development of tourism in the country where you live and globally:
Where I live: 2.67
Global: 1.67

On a scale of 1-5 (1 being poor and 5 being the best) how would you evaluate the work of developing ecotourism by IYE organizers United Nations Environment Programme and World Tourism Organization since 2002?
UNEP 2
UNWTO 2.33

How do you characterize ecotourism in other countries? Provide examples of best practices or greenwashing.
Few existing initiatives, but increasingly there are local initiatives increasingly active tourism developed in an environment of nature. Institutional support in these cases, compared with companies that receive mass tourism, is ridiculous.

There are some established leaders like Costa Rica, South Africa, Australia, Botswana, Malaysia and Peru, but new destinations like Panama, Vietnam, India and Namibia are innovating the market.

Notable accomplishments in the past 10 years?
Contributing to the overall sustainable development of tourism, highlighting the immense potential of traveling as a learning experience, empowering host communities, and financing and drawing attention to the protected areas of megadiverse countries.


Big Questions

Is ecotourism thriving, surviving or diving?
Has ecotourism reached its use-by-date?
What have been the accomplishments in the past ten years?
Is anyone interested in creating a 'where are they now' profile of participants in the online IYE Ecotourism and 2002 Ecotourism discussions?
