Special session at the International Ecotourism Society Conference in Nairobi

Machiel Lamers, together with Wageningen colleague Rene van der Duim and Daudi Sumba of the African Wildlife Foundation will organise a special session titled “Tourism Conservation Enterprises: the Do's and Don'ts” on the International Ecotourism Society Conference, to be held in Nairobi from 24 to 27 of September. Conservation organizations in Eastern and Southern Africa have played a pivotal role in bringing together conservation and development objectives by developing all sorts of tourism arrangements such as community-based tourism organizations and tourism benefit schemes. This session discusses “tourism conservation enterprises” as an intervention strategy to enhance biodiversity protection and community livelihood in areas outside national parks.
