Linking Tourism and Conservation Survey

We are pleased to announce a new GRID-Arendal Linking Tourism and Conservation survey. This survey is aimed at collecting information on existing global Sustainable Tourism initiatives that support protected areas. With this survey we hope to identify, learn from and replicate positive examples where tourism supports the creation, management, and development of protected areas.
Contribute with information to the global Linking Tourism and Conservation Initiative

This is a global GRID-Arendal project that supports the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD; www.cbd.int).

The main goals of the survey are to:

  • Capture global cases of Linking Tourism and Conservation
  • Identify communication tools that efficiently convey how tourism supports protected areas
  • Highlight functioning models and produce incentives for replication

This initiative supports the overarching aim of protecting global biodiversity and enabling future generations to experience healthy ecosystems and the beauty of nature.

Information received in the survey will be mapped and included in a major international publication. Your participation in completing this survey will contribute to these efforts and is greatly appreciated. Please forward this information to relevant contacts.

The Linking Tourism and Conservation initiative is a recognised project of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Tourism (GPST).

The survey was developed by GRID-Arendal as part of a partnership with the European Commission project entitled FAST-LAIN - Further Action on Sustainable Tourism.
