The project ‘Sustainable Tourism and Protected Areas in a Post-COVID World’ aims to develop a more crisis resilient and sustainable tourism landscape and in the spirit of “building back better”, improve the ecological and social aspects of tourism in and around protected and conserved areas.  

Implemented by IUCN with support of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through their COVID-19 Response Measures for Tourism programme. In this project, we collaborate with local and Indigenous Peoples in developing community-based sustainable tourism plans and activities that puts people and nature at the forefront. It also supports Protected Area managers in implementing the global IUCN Green List standard criteria for fair and effective tourism and visitation management. 

The measures are closely tailored to the needs of the local people and for this project IUCN has partnered with Planeterra Foundation who will provide training and support to community members in and around Protected Areas and World Heritage sites in Peru and Viet Nam.
