Environment includes social, cultural, economic and political considerations, as well as
the more usually understood features such as soil, climate and food supply.
Notably, biological agents are sensitive to environmental conditions. To sum up, the
relative ease and low cost of producing biological agents, the difficulties in detecting
their presence and treating exposed victims and their potential will be used not only for
humans but crops and livestock as well.
In the future The terrorists probably being use biological agents in water resources and
other environmental sites. This can be a negative impact on economies of the countries
and on public health.
International tourism is one of the world’s largest industries and a major source for the
economies of less developed and developing countries. But Terrorism can hurt easily
the tourism sector by reducing tourist arrivals.
Therefore, national policy makers and academics once treated bioterrorism as nothing
more than a theoretical possibility.
This paper will be an introductory text about the relationship that exists between
environment, bioterrorism, tourism and economy
Keywords: Environmental risk, Biological terrorism, Tourism Economy, Economical Risks.
