Dynamiques touristiques d'une île exposée aux cyclones : le cas de Saint-Martin aux Antilles

Abstract : The economy of the island of Saint-Martin, which is almost exclusively based on tourism, was heavily affected by Hurricane Irma in 2017. The differences between the Dutch and French parts of the island are due to struc-tural, external and public policy factors. The economic recovery is already under way and will continue for several years. Based on a chronological analysis of public statistics (in particular airport arrivals) and data from a scraping of the Airbnb platform, we propose to characterise the impact of Irma on the tourism economy. These last data are unpublished and allow us to clearly differentiate the dynamics of the 2 parts of the island. Overtime, in the context of climate change, the question posed to Saint-Martin will be to implement policies to adapt the tourism economy to cope with the recurrence of hurricanes as powerful as Irma.
