PDF File Size: 9.67 MB | Download   
This document is the culmination of work commissioned by the World Bank which set out to improve the understanding of the how local communities and the environment can benefit fromsustainable tourism development in protected areas and the concessions policies required to facilitate this development.The World Bank Group pursues its mission of reducing poverty and improving people’s lives by promoting sustainable development through investment and advisory services in both the public and private sectors. The World Bank recognizes that tourism is an important source of inclusive poverty reduction—particularly in the developing world—and strongly believes the sector has the potential to boost competitiveness, expand economic opportunity and provide a pathway to prosperity in client countries. Many developing countries have rich natural assets including national parks, forest reserves, and diverse biodiversity that have potential to offer visitors nature-based tourism experiences. Through investing in the tourism development of these protected areas, governments can help generate income for the communities living around these assets. Often, destinations do not have significant financial resources to allocate to the preservation of these areas and must seek out alternative ways of funding their protection. The revenue generated from tourism is one such solution to supplement public financing. It can provide income to support conservation and management of these areas while also creating economic opportunities for the communities that live in and around the protected area borders. The World Bank also feels that development can be best catalyzed by learning from others—including their successes, challenges and lessons learned. The purpose of this document is to highlight examples of tourism development in protected areas and provide insights and lessons learned from around the world as a series of case studies. It has been written for those who are new to concessions—including national governments, protected area managers, entrepreneurs, tourism authorities and their advisors in the international development and non-governmental organization (NGO) community—to learn more from practical examples of how concessions were utilized for developing tourism in protected areas and better understand some of the stakeholders involved and policies required to create change within a destination. The authors conducted research to identify and select diverse and wide-ranging examples. The identification of case studies focused on both international tourism award recipients and recommendations from the World Bank team and industry colleagues. Selections include destinations as well as public and private sector tourism operations based upon their successful achievement of: Support for the protection of cultural and natural resources; Providing direct benefits to the social and economic well-being of local people; and Environmentally-friendly operations.
