  • Ecological footprint analysis as a tool to assess tourism sustainability

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday 1 January 2002
    Objective: 

    This article aims to provide a methodological framework for the calculation of ecological footprints related to leisure tourism. Based on the example of the Seychelles, it reveals the statistical obstacles that have to be overcome in the calculation process and discusses the strengths and weaknesses of such an approach. As many tropical island-states depend heavily on foreign exchange earnings derived from visitors arriving by air, special attention is paid to the use of energy associated with air travel.
