Panorama twin webinar: Protected area tourism solutions

A Panorama twin webinar on sustainable protected area tourism solutions was held in March/April.

Ecotourism in the Southern Caucasus

The tourism business plays a major role in sustaining the global network of protected areas. At the same time, half of all international travellers visit a protected area during their trip. However, the advocates of natural spaces often are concerned about the potential impacts of unsustainable tourism - but when done right, tourism and conservation can greatly benefit from each other.

Presenters from a range of countries introduced their Panorama case studies in the webinars, explaining what made them successful and discussed with the audience. The webinars were co-hosted by the IUCN Global Protected Areas Programme and the WCPA Tourism Specialist Group.
