Planeta.com's 10th original event, the Financing Sustainable Tourism Conference, took place in 2002.

ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE

This Financing Sustainable Tourism (FST) attracted more than 200 participants, including entrepreneurs, government policy-makers, researchers and academics. In addition to the summary we have prepared longer excerpts of the dialogue in four parts: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4.

The event was organized by Planeta and co-sponsored by George Washington University International Institute of Tourism Studies, International Centre for Ecotourism Research, The Shores System and Sustainable Sources.

The FST Conference examined private and public funding for operations which support sustainable tourism principles. Conference participants reviewed case studies in which private and public financing have worked in the past and can work more effectively in the future.

Key points have been published in English and Spanish. Also, updated is the index of funding sources.
