The Coral Triangle Sustainable Nature-based Tourism Project looks to find ways to develop and accelerate ‘the right kind of tourism’ in the six countries making up the CTI-CFF. It looks to find a realistic balance between tourism development, local communities and conservation.

It 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.

This investment prospectus seeks to introduce projects that, if funded, could make a significant difference in pursuing the objectives of sustainable tourism in the Coral Triangle. It relates to three countries – Timor-Leste, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.

The project seeks to assist in unlocking the potential US $204 billion in value from nature-based tourism in the Coral Triangle, whilst supporting the development of a more balanced tourism sector across the region that will protect its marine areas of high conservation value, and helping to support the broader socio–economic needs of each CTI-CFF country more effectively over the long term.
