Tourism Development for sustainable and environmentally friendly Economic Growth

Sustainable tourism
WTFL & Swisscontact: A sustainable partnership since 2014. Swisscontact`s overall objective is to support the development of sustainable tourism in developing and emerging countries in order to generate productive jobs and facilitate new income opportunities for broad sections of the population in target regions.

In addition to autonomous tourism projects, Swisscontact develops and accompanies individual tourism components in market and regional development projects. Additional services include technical and methodological advice and support, tailored to the specific needs of a tourism region: experts accompany representatives of countries and municipalities in areas such as strategic planning, destination management, product development, marketing, linkages with supply chains, business development, training and further education, strengthening the regulatory environment and community empowerment.

Since 2014, we’ve created several joint success stories with our valuable partner, the World Tourism Forum Lucerne.
