Community-Based Ecotourism

One of the surest means of conserving biodiversity is to ensure that the people living close to the resources reap direct economic benefits from it. In view of this, community-based ecotourism (CBET) has become a popular tool for biodiversity conservation, based on the principle that biodiversity must pay for itself by generating economic benefits, particularly for local people. THRESCOAL work closely with local communities with ecotourism potentials to build their capacity and provide them with the necessary technical assistance to undertake community-based ecotourism projects.
