New Zealand: Tourism kills itself

Clean-green New Zealand tourism is booming. With visitor numbers rising, problems are rising too. The current forecast for visitor numbers estimates 4.5 million tourists in the year 2022. Take this view-angle: In 2022 the New Zealand population has effectively doubled.

While there is concern and argument about the money required to create much needed infrastructure, the issue doesn’t stop at availability of accommodation. The supply of energy, water and wastewater services has to be provided. Road use effectively doubles on main highways. And the impact on nature generally results in diminishing value for the tourism sector itself. In other words: Tourism kills itself.
