Tourism ecocertification in the international year of ecotourism


Tourism ecocertification in the international year of ecotourism



Journal of Ecotourism 1(2/3): 197-203



DOI: 10.1080/14724040208668126

Ecocertification and accreditation were hot topics for corridor discussion at the World Ecotourism Summit in Quebec in May 2002. The issue appears to have become quite politicized. Here, therefore, is an attempt to summarize recent events and, to some degree at least, to deconstruct their political context. There is a degree of secrecy, with some critical technical and financial information not yet available to the public. The comments presented in this paper are based on public information.
