Non-Extractive Uses of Marine Biodiversity - through activities such as recreational diving and Ecotourism - generate high-quality jobs and income for coastal communities around the world and put in motion a virtuous cycle of benefit-sharing throughout the national economies where these activities are inserted. There is however little recognition of these values at international treaties, which insist in treating Tourism as an "impact" without examining it vis-a-vis other economic alternatives. This side-event hopes to bring together the community of practice represented at Cancún, government officials, NGOs and other interested parties to discuss case studies and address ways to improve the protection of the rights of non-extratrive users of Nature at CBD and other relevant fora.
