St Lucia - Island at Risk

Posted: 26 July 2001

Green gold, hot sulphur springs and sandy beaches are just some of St Lucia's assets. The backbone of St Lucia's economy is the banana industry - the 'Green Gold' that flourishes in this tropical Caribbean climate. But tourism is the island's fastest growing sector, bringing as many visitors every year as there are residents.

This film looks at the costs and benefits of different development stratagies for one small island.

Produced in 1998, this 26-minute film (programme 22) forms part of the Earth Report Series II, and is available in English from:
