When planned well, local people can benefit from tourism, biodiversity and natural environments can be protected and cultural and historic sites can remain intact.

"These winners are perfect examples of the way the travel and tourism industry should operate," said Jordan's Queen Noor, the 2002 World Legacy Awards Honorary awards committee chairperson. "I am heartened by their example and hope other extraordinary places are similarly inspired."
