Antarctic tourism. A square peg in a round hole: fitting impact assessment under the Antarctic Environmental Protocol to Antarctic tourism



Antarctic tourism. A square peg in a round hole: fitting impact assessment under the Antarctic Environmental Protocol to Antarctic tourism



Impact Assessment and Project Appraisal 21(1): 13-24



The 1991 Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty develops and codifies Antarctic environmental impact assessment (EIA) obligations. This paper outlines the history and present nature of Antarctic EIA obligations and reviews the emergence of Antarctic tourism. The treaty explicitly recognizes the primacy of Antarctica's scientific and environmental values, whereas tourism, while a legitimate activity, is not otherwise an embedded Antarctic activity.
