Phuket’s workshop focused on environmental conservation in coastal zone management, participation of the community and in the benefits of process redevelopment, as well as preventive measures and preparedness for natural disasters. The growth of the tourism industry faces a major challenge in the twenty-first century: to become a completely green industry, which serves to protect the planet’s natural wealth and to really improve the living conditions of disadvantaged populations.
