DOMINICA RANKED #1 ISLAND IN CARIBBEAN BY NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVELER

American Chronicle: "Washington, DC –– Dominica was officially ranked as the top sustainable island in the Caribbean and among the top ten in the world when National Geographic’s Center for Sustainable Destinations (CSD) surveyed conditions on 111 selected islands and archipelagos in its fourth annual Destination Scorecard survey, which appears in the November/December 2007 issue of National Geographic Traveler.

An independent panel, which consisted of 522 well-traveled experts and aided by George Washington University in Washington DC, considered the qualities that make world-wide island destinations unique using six criteria weighted according to importance: environmental and ecological quality; social and cultural integrity; condition of historic buildings and archaeological sites; aesthetic appeal; quality of tourism management; and outlook for the future."
