Creating Resilient Eco-Travel Destinations in Protected Areas

This training course will develop guidelines for successfully establishing a resilient eco-travel destination in a protected area. It will outline the necessary steps to ensure the smallest ecological footprint while providing eco-tourists with a comfortable atmosphere to learn about and partake in the local conservation efforts. Experts in the field of eco-tourism will be invited to join in the discussion, and a print publication will be distributed.

The course will cover in depth what to consider when building the eco-lodging:
*Site location
*Building materials
*Energy Sources
*Plumbing Systems
*Decor & Style

It will also outline crucial logistics issues such as:
*Least invasive types of transportation to and from the eco-lodge
*Ways to approach and involve the local community in order to boost livelihood and stimulate the local economy

In an effort to raise awareness on the fragility of the protected area, an eco-lodge should provide eco-tourists with abundant opportunities to learn and partake in local conservation efforts and biodiversity restoration where eco-tourists will play an active role in building resilience and strengthening nature.
