Training Results

The training was very well received with excellent participation from all present representatives. The first day of the training was lecture oriented and included presenting and introducing ecotourism and sustainable tourism concepts. Four case studies were then presented from Cambodia, Thailand, and two from Jordan that highlight poor tourism practices related to nature conservation and community engagement, as well as best practice as it relates to Jordan. Various interpretation techniques and tools were also presented to bring the story of the place to the forefront. Mapping exercises of asset inventories in the area was a good way to bring focus and attention to existing potential for development. Mapping of various stakeholders, their role and mandate was successful in bringing clarity to the role of the participants and identifying the opportunity in the area under their jurisdiction.
