Travel - Good For Humanity; Bad For The Planet?

The travel industry – and air travel in particular - is at the sharp end of the emissions debate.

Laila Al-Hassan, an Emirati woman who works for state environmental agency in Abu Dhabi, represents a small but growing lobby - urging their fellow citizens, and the rest of the world, to rethink attitudes to tourism and travel.

She is in Dubai to interview key players in the environmental debate.

She speaks to the Head of Dubai International Airport, the UAE Minister for Culture and Tourism, hotel developers and members of the local environmental lobby.
