Partners for Sustainable Travel
Switzerland has not only found a new spokesperson for their tourism promotion but also been known for decades as a country that makes an effort to find the right balance between tourism development and the environment. The whole foundation of its attractiveness is natural beauty that needs to be preserved.
As the world conquers the COVID-19 Pandemic, thoughtful travel and tourism companies are developing strategies about how to appropriately and safely travel again. Supporting the United Nations Sustainable Tourism Goals, Pacific Film Foundation is recruiting travel and tourism partners to promote ecotourism and local products.
UN Study Measures Economic Value of Wildlife Watching Tourism in Africa
This program looks at the wildlife watching market segment within the tourism sector and highlights its economic importance with a view to encouraging tourism authorities and the tourism industry to collaborate in strengthening anti-poaching measures and raising awareness of these issues among tourists.
The analysis identifies key economic indicators and characteristics of wildlife watching tourism in African countries and intends to support the ongoing efforts of African governments and the broader international community in the fight against poaching.
UN Goal 17 - Build sustainable tourism that creates jobs and promotes local culture and products
Tourism is one of the world's fastest growing industries and an important source of foreign exchange and employment, while being closely linked to the social, economic, and environmental well-being of many countries, especially developing countries.
Maritime or ocean-related tourism, as well as coastal tourism, are for example vital sectors of the economy in small island developing States (SIDS) and coastal least developed countries (LDCs) (see also: The Potential of the Blue Economy report as well as the Community of Ocean Action on sustainable blue economy)
Invest in Local Eco-Tourism Businesses
The goal is to increase investment in sustainable tourism, including eco-tourism and cultural tourism, which may include creating small- and medium-sized enterprises and facilitating access to finance, including through microcredit initiatives for the poor, indigenous peoples and local communities in areas with high eco-tourism potential.
Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has its origins in the United States. The model is simple: members of a community subscribe on an annual basis to receive a farmer’s produce. This allows farmers to plan ahead based on what they can grow that their community will want. And with subscription payment in advance, the farmer is better able to manage the annual growing and harvest cycle.
Your generous donation will fund our mission.
