The World Bank is committed to tackling the world’s toughest development challenges – especially poverty and inequality. All of our resources – our global development knowledge, investment capital, financial expertise and country presence – are devoted to making the world a more just and prosperous place. Tourism can play an integral role in helping us fulfil this mission. In many developing countries, tourism promotes inclusive economic growth, creating jobs and attracting foreign investors.
Nature-based tourism is a growing sector and in 2020 the World Bank published ‘Tools and Resources for Nature-Based Tourism‘ and an online resource directory with 370 resources following an extensive international consultation process. Since then, further important resources that have been produced – particularly relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, biodiversity, and waste.
Through this short survey we want to invite you to share any important materials published since mid-2019 that could be included in the 2nd edition of ‘Tools and Resources for Nature-Based Tourism‘. The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete, and it will be open until Friday 27 May 2022.
Note: Please focus your responses on tools for nature-based tourism specifically, rather than tourism, sustainability or conservation in general
