Synopsis The International Conference on Tourism and Island Economies was jointly organized by theWorld Tourism Organization (WTO), the Organizing Committee of the World Festival for IslandCultures – Jeju 2001 and the Jeju Provincial Government and was held in Jeju City, JejuProvince, Republic of Korea from 13-15 June 2001, within the framework of the “World Festivalof Island Cultures – Jeju 2001” which was organized in the island from 19 May to 17 June 2001.The Festival brought together representatives from over thirty island nations who portrayed theirunique cultures to visitors from all over the world.

Islands, particularly small islands, are extremely fragile integrated systems whose futuredevelopment needs to be focused on sustainable and integrated options capable of reconciling theeconomy, human development and environmental conservation. Tourism is a booming sector,with a strong capacity for transforming fragile environments, which constitutes both anopportunity and a challenge for islands: an opportunity to diversify limited economic activitiesand employment in the islands, and a challenge, as tourism has considerable impacts on islandsystems, usually extremely vulnerable. These impacts need to be fully taken into account andproperly managed.

Sustainable tourism development is becoming, all over the world an irreversible demand on thepart of tourists and local populations. Growing demands are made for quality surroundings inwhich environmental sustainability, nature, culture, exceptional places with an identity of theirown and authenticity are considered to be key values in terms of tourism appeal and local qualityof life. Thus, positive interaction should be sought between tourism and environmental, socioculturaland economic factors. The viability of new sustainable tourism policies in islands isbecoming increasingly conditioned by the very broad participation of all stakeholders. Inparticular, it will be impossible to multiply the economic effects of tourism, achieve positivesocial and cultural development or conserve island ecosystems and natural resources withoutmaking the local community jointly responsible for meeting these aims.
