Notes to Dr. Panayotou's presentation
Dr. Panayotou's remarks about the need to focus on the up-market segment of tourism provoked a lot of questions. Specifically, many groups feared that by focusing on high rates (less people and more money), a substantial number of people would be taken out of the market, since they would not be able to afford the high prices. This strategy would also greatly constrain and restrict the economic opportunities for local and indigenous communities, relegating their participation to the low end of the service sector instead of providing opportunities for entrepreneurship at the local level, such as for smaller scale tourist facilities run by the local communities.
Dr. Panayotou responded to such concerns by stating that opening Panama's natural and cultural resources to all kinds of tourism would impose a cost on those resources that would not be sustainable in the long-term. That does not necessarily mean that only five-star hotel tourists could bring benefits to the economy. For the lower-end of tourism you could have ecotourism activities with very low costs and impacts, where the net benefits could still be great, provided these people are guided and taught about the surroundings. Dr. Panayotou expressed that there is a lot of evidence around the world showing that the damage caused to the environment (national parks, coral reefs, etc.) is proportional to the number of people that are let into those areas.
Dr. Panayotou also reminded conference participants that it is important not to confuse quality and scale.

"The studies we analyzed do not form an adequate basis for making decisions about expending scarce resources and bringing about irreversible changes to the environment," said Dr. Theodore Panayotou, an environmental economist with the Harvard Institute for International Development. "One of the main purposes of these official studies was to examine the social and environmental costs of the project compared to its other benefits. Unfortunately, our review revealed that the consultants did not adequately answer these questions, and in fact overestimated the project's benefits Â- like iron exports Â- and underestimated its significant costs Â- like loss of fisheries," explained Panayotou.
