local materials i.e. thatch and imported building material for resort
construction to complement the natural vegetation and island
environment. The guidelines restrict the construction of buildings
exceeding the treetops or more than two stories. It also limits any
construction within a distance of 5 meters from the shore line
• Adequate water supply: The Guidelines emphasizes on restricted use of
limited ground water, roof catchment, storage and desalination using the
reverse osmosis technique.

incineration, compaction and disposal in deep-sea area. The Guidelines
prohibits the disposal of plastic material and empty cans in the sea. It also
encourages recycling of waste material and underground utility lines.
• Control over marine ecology: The guidelines forbid the collection of corals,
seashells and rocks from the sea reefs and beaches. Infact purchase on

black coral.

Tourism Policy Maldives
Being an Islamic country the Government of Maldives has made several
socio- cultural and economic policies for strict adherence.
• Socio- cultural policies:
The Government policy restricts local people to mix up with the tourist in
order to reduce the socio-cultural impacts. According to the policy on an
average there should not be more than one "tourist resort" to every two
uninhabited island. The policy prohibits nude bathing and imposes fines on
both the bather and the owner of the resort.
• Economic policies:
Encourages foreign investment in tourism sector. According to the policy, all
tourist resort owners are responsible for providing non- polluting refuse and
wastewater disposal. Resort owner should provide their own infrastructure
of electric power, water supply, sewage and solid waste disposal, boat dock
and recreation facilities in their resort. Government policies also include
strict regulations on wind surfing and dive operations.

The Galapagos Islands
According to UNESCO official Website
• Galapagos Islands status as World Heritage contributes to raising
national awareness of the islands' importance for conservation. Local
awareness was evidenced by very well-attended civic marches in
favour of shark conservation.

The Government of Ecuador (GoE) has also been encouraged, by the
World Heritage Committee and others, to further protect the islands
through enactment of the Special Law for Galapagos which includes:
• stricter controls on immigration to the site;
• creation of a quarantine system to combat alien species;
• the creation of a much larger marine reserve around the islands with
improved legal protection;
• limitations on property rights and economic activities to make these
consistent with the goal of conservation, and;
• increased national funding allocation to the site.
• World Heritage Centre opportunities have been provided for
Galapagos managers to receive more training and also to pass on
their own experiences of managing Galapagos. Asked whether
increased networking and exchange between sites would improve
management further, all consulted managers replied emphatically
that it would
• For the Galapagos Islands the threats from its associated tourist industry
are considerable. Two of the most significant are: firstly, the threat to local
fauna caused by the year-round tourist presence, which leads to local
population growth, increased invasive species and degradation of more
land for urbanization and agriculture; and, secondly, the threat caused by
the waste generated by the large number of visitors to the park.
• In Galapagos particularly, the increased introduction of alien species
destroys the local biodiversity and natural habitat. In light of this, the WH
committee recommended that quarantine measures be introduced and
that programmes be initiated to eliminate goats and other feral animals.
The Government of Ecuador responded by introducing an inspection and
quarantine system and by exterminating goats on a number of islands.
• According to managers questioned on the subject, overall, since the site
became a World Heritage it has benefited significantly, especially from the
influence of WH in extending the site to include the Marine Reserve, and
the Ecuadorian governmental passage of the Special Law for Galapagos
