Abstract

Tourism has been a mixed blessing to Indonesia. The country is now exploring ecotourism, which is small scale, locally managed, and less harmful to the environment and local cultures. He and some colleagues visited the Togian Islands of Sulawesi to establish a procedure for assessing social impacts of tourist development there. Discussed are the biological and cultural diversity of the Togian Islands and the barriers to ecotourism there. He concludes that sustainable terrestrial ecotourism there is unlikely ; marine ecotourism may be feasible with carefully planned investments. - (SLD)
