Community Based Eco-tourism - Income Generation
Eco-tourism Training: Identification and Planning Proposals
Community based ecotourism continues to be a valid source of income for rural communities in Cambodia. As well as supporting the previous project areas in Chi Phat and Trapaing Roung, the Community Based Eco-tourism has been expanded through this project to a number of communes in the Tonle Sap area. These communes have been provided with training on eco-awareness, waste management, hospitality, first aid, eco-guiding and mountain biking. Live & Learn has also worked with a cluster of ecotourism communities on first aid, management and leadership training. The ecotourism communes have been provided with first aid kits and Live & Learn developed interpretive field guides (on birds and mammals in Cambodia). This will help the local community members provide a thorough and exciting ecotourism experience for visitors to their area, whilst protecting their local environment and natural resources.
