Tourism-Dependent Small Islands, Inclusive Growth, and the Blue Economy

Hampton, Mark P., Jeyacheya, Julia (2020) Tourism-Dependent Small Islands, Inclusive Growth, and the Blue Economy. One Earth, 2 (1). pp. 8-10. ISSN 2590-3322. (doi:10.1016/j.oneear.2019.12.017) (KAR id:79489)


Tourism-dependent Small Island Developing States face a number of mounting pressures, calling into question the potential for further development of the industry. We argue that, in the short to medium term, tourism is a pragmatic strategy but that islands’ tourism dependence could be mitigated by the strengthening of economic linkages and the reduction of economic leakages.
