The value of sustainable tourism as a complement to agriculture activities in rural community development  0

Presented By: Colin Richard

Event: ECHO International Agriculture Conference 2016 (2016-11-15)

This presentation will examine the value of sustainable tourism as a complement to agriculture activities in rural community development settings. The United World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) identifies tourism as “one of the strongest drivers of world trade and prosperity,” and the majority of visitors to the developing world – including shortterm missions groups - utilize tourism infrastructure. Various types of tourism will be discussed, as well as the United Nations Educational and Scientific Organization’s (UNESCO) framing of “sustainable tourism.”
