FORMER UN chief Kofi Annan has slammed Costa del Sol planners who have allowed the coastline to become overdeveloped.
Speaking to a packed conference hall in Marbella, Annan said planners should have been more careful.


“Before rolling out a tourism strategy, one has to make sure that the development is sustainable from the point of view of infrastructure and services offered to the tourist.
“But, most of all, it has to be sustainable for the local community – the people who live in the area. One has to avoid the temptation to over exploit facilities.”
Mr Annan, secretary general of the UN between 1997 and 2006 was speaking as guest of honour at the third Global Congress on wine and climate change.
