Tourism in the African Region

GRID-Arendal has a long history of work in the African region. Falling under the Capacity Building and Assessment Programme of GRID-Arendal, Africa activities focus on providing science-based environmental information for resource management and decision-making. Sustainable Tourism in the African region is a significant industry with the potential for positive impact on GDP, conservation and livelihoods when planned, implemented and managed sustainably. The African region has well functioning examples of Sustainable Tourism supporting conservation work or protected areas through financial flow, management and education.
