IUCN: Integrating Biodiversity in Hotels

Photo: Kiattipong Panchee/Soneva

International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has published several papers on biodiversity considerations in planning and operational decisions for hotels and resorts. Soneva Fushi is one of the case studies illustrating that it makes sense both from a conservation as well as a business perspective.

The tourism industry, including the hospitality sector, depends strongly on healthy ecosystems, because those ecosystems – and the wildlife, habitats, landscapes and natural attractions that comprise them – are often the very thing that draws tourists to the destination in the first place.

All the reports are available from www.iucn.org/hotels.

The case study report Siting and Designs of Hotel and Resorts are available for download and Soneva Fushi’s case is found on page 38.
