Tourism Development for sustainable and environmentally friendly Economic Growth

Tourism is much more than just an economic sector. It is a complex system wherein potential interactions with other economic sectors can develop sustainably both upstream and downstream. For this reason, it is essential that projects are implemented and developed within the broader context.

Swisscontact’s overall objective is to support the development of sustainable tourism in developing countries in order to generate productive jobs and facilitate new income opportunities for broad sections of the population in target regions.
