REPORT: Developing and Promoting Sustainable Nature-based Tourism in the Coral Triangle
An initiative, supported by funding from the Australian Government, that looks to assist the 6 countries of the Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF) to develop and/or accelerate a longterm approach to more sustainable Nature-based Tourism in the Coral Triangle.
The long-term vision that the broader initiative is designed to support is that:
The Coral Triangle region is a renowned sustainable tourism destination with economic benefits flowing to communities, governments and private enterprise, providing a strong incentive to protect and sustain the region's natural environment.
The initiative focuses on the long-term business opportunity a Coral Triangle Nature-based Tourism Brand could present for the whole region and what would be necessary to support and promote it.
It is also intended to encourage and assist the Tourism Industry to accelerate its investment in Nature-based Tourism within the Coral Triangle.
The Nature-based Tourism in the Coral Triangle report provides baseline data and analysis to help highlight the most effective ways to lay some initial foundations to support the above long-term vision.
It also outlines some of the challenges likely to be faced and identifies some models from around the world that can help accelerate the Coral Triangle’s Nature-based Tourism development.
