General Session VI – Conservation Matters, Nurturing Our Nature

The Caribbean is known for the diversity of its assets including pristine natural environments, a plethora of endemic flora, fauna and coral species and spectacular landscapes, which are the foundation for the continued appeal of Caribbean Tourism.

We are cognizant that tourism as a development strategy is not without its challenges, and must therefore actively seek to conserve these assets and ensure sustainable and responsible use. This session will demonstrate the viability of crafting alternative paths to realizing our tourism potential, without compromising value and benefits for future generations.
