Communication, tourisme et développement durable au Sénégal : enjeux et risques

Abstract : The development of tourism raises the question of socio-political stability and environmental health concern: hence the notion of sustainable development. Therefore, the link between tourism and sustainable development becomes obvious. But this relationship has value only when it takes into account the holistic concept of sustainability even requiring priority apprehension of notions of risk and emergency with the necessity of information and communication as means of detection and prevention. The universality of science and technology should enable all nations, through proper use, opportunities for learning and opening holders of sustainable growth. Therefore, the considerable changes that can bring in the social and economic ideology and communication techniques should lead to a critical examination of the opportunities they are likely to foster in the South. However, the question is whether all means of communication with the inevitable pressures that accompany them, can be used to develop a positive image of these countries, like Senegal, which one is seeking its political, economical, and cultural affirmation through ecotourism. Obviously, we know that the media and information technology tools are usually double-edged: which leads us to reflect on issues of information processing and understanding of the concepts of risk by public institutions, tourists, tour operators, people and especially the media in tourists sending countries or destinations. News about the risks inherent to tourism and the extent of fears that they continue to generate as far as the African continent is concerned - "destination at risk" - forces us to consider this study to help identify these risks and the processing of information related to hazards and their prevention.
