The EU study to understand the impact of COVID-19 on wildlife tourism in protected areas, financed by the EU project on “Wildlife economy: sustainable tourism in protected areas”, is being extended to seek more responses from North, West and Central Africa.
The survey is available in French and English, and includes questions that allow us to compare the period before the crisis with now, and estimates for the foreseeable future. It also asks what type of support might help (relating to the local value chains, and during different phases; conservation; business operations, policy interventions etc.) and on what terms these might work.

Nous demandons également quelle sorte de soutien serait utile (en relation aux chaines de valeurs locales, et durant les différentes phases ; conservation ; opérations commerciales, interventions politiques, etc.) et sous quelles conditions ce soutien pourrait être apporté. Ce questionnaire devrait prendre 20-25 minutes à compléter. Veuillez compléter ce formulaire d’ici au 31 Mai 2020.
