Description:
Tourism is a vital sector of the economies of most SIDS. For more than half of the SIDS, it is their largest source of foreign exchange. The social, economic and environmental well-being of many SIDS is tied to this sector (UNDESA 2010). Tourism receipts represent more than 30% of their total exports; in comparison, the average for the world is just over 5% (World Bank 2011).
