Tourism began to emerge in the Caribbean from the mid-1960s, and since that time, the sector experienced consistent growth so as to make it the major economic sector in the region by the early 1990s. While several factors such as the development of air travel, and closeness to the major source markets of the United States of America contributed to the strong growth in Caribbean tourism, the region's warm weather as well as pristine natural environments comprising of beaches, coral reefs, spectacular scenery and friendly peoples have undoubtedly contributed to the development of the tourism sector in the Caribbean. Today however, after more than 40 years of strong growth, tourism has been shown to contribute to significant impacts on the natural environment with the potential to significantly undermine the same natural resource based upon which the sector has been developed. Many countries, having recognized this development, have sought to implement sustainable tourism policies in order to offset these impacts, as well as to compensate for the cost of such impact on the domestic economies. The aim of this paper is to examine the nature and scope of such policies with a view to determining the effectiveness of sustainable tourism policies in the Caribbean. The study employs a case study approach by assessing policies in three Caribbean countries: Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados and Saint Lucia. It also reviews broader regional strategies for fostering sustainable tourism in the Caribbean
The case for financing Caribbean resilience building in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic by Alleyne Dillon( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has not only been sudden but has required significant re-adjustment on the part of world economies with far-reaching effects anticipated in the short to medium term. For vulnerable Caribbean economies already challenged by high debt service payments, external support is needed to fill the resource gap. The objective of this report is to assess the impact of the pandemic imposed restrictions across six critical sectors and to provide policy recommendations to ensure a swift recovery and make a case for greater external concessional financial support to the fiscally challenged economies of the subregion. The sectors examined include health, tourism, international transportation, energy, education and social protection
Economic implications of the ban on single-use plastics in the Caribbean a case study of Trinidad and Tobago by Willard Phillips( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past 50 years, the global annual production of plastics has increased dramatically, from 15 million tons in 1964 to roughly 311 million tons by 2014. This spectacular growth has occurred due to its unrivalled physical properties, which allow it to be widely applied in diverse economic production processes, at low cost. One of its main appplications has been in the packaging industry where roughly 26% of the global volume of plastics is used. More importantly, as much as 95% of plastic packaging - estimated at USD 80 - 120 billion annually - is for single-use, either as packaging or as items intended to be used only once before they are discarded as waste or recycled. Of this amount, only 5% is routinely recycled, and with the bulk ending up either in landfills, water courses or even oceans. Single-use plastics have become a major global threat to public health and the natural environment. On this basis, many countries have implemented various legal and policy sanctions to limit and or control the use of single-use plastics in their economies. Within the Caribbean subregion, as many as twenty-seven countries and territories have legislated or proposed some form of policy controls on reducing the use of plastics over the past decade. The present study examines the economic implications of a ban on single-use plastics proposed for implementation in Trinidad and Tobago in 2020. Applying a cross-section analysis, the potential direct impacts to the economy were assesed at roughly 0.058% of annual GDP, to be borne by six key economic subsectors. A revised incentive framework, enhanced waste management infrastructure, public education and awareness raising initiatives were identified as important policy elements to be undertaken in the implementation of the ban. Given several limitations of the research, this economic assessment is deemed to be at best a lower bound estimate of the total potential economic impacts
