Address cumulative impacts of increasing polar tourism

Kees Bastmeijer

This project is a problem-oriented polar law and governance project. The combination of strong increases of tourism and a focus on specific (less strategic) issues in tourism research and tourism management is likely to result in a slow but continuing ‘consumption’ of polar values. This project aims to identify and study strategic instruments and approaches - applied in Svalbard - to prevent cumulative impacts of increasing polar tourism and to assess whether these instruments and approaches may be applied in Antarctica. Envisaged output includes a peer-reviewed publication, a conference presentation and a Norwegian-Dutch working paper for the ATCM.
