Sustainable Tourism

Development

A growing and thriving tourism industry in Egypt over recent years has highlighted the need for a more sustainable approach towards tourism planning and development. This project aims to support the industry and government institutions in addressing the various gaps within the planning and regulatory framework that shape tourism development in the country. As well as, providing a platform for government institutions, the private sector and civil society to work together in harmony to promote a more sustainable and productive industry. 

Sustainable Tourism

Practices and Operations

Enhancing and preserving the existing protected area network in Egypt is an important cornerstone of this project. The aim is to successfully promote Egypt as a global destination for ecotourism and develop community-based systems to allow locals to benefit from these natural resources and manage them sustainably. The project will also address the need for an increase in management capacities within existing protected areas and introduce novel co-management techniques, as means to safeguard the unique ecology and biodiversity found in these regions.
