COVID-19: Biodiversity and Biodiversity-supporting tourism need to come up much higher on the world’s agenda!

The present Corona-times imply significant challenges for the entire tourism sector, including our members, who stay behind our important 39 LT&C-Examples. On the other hand, times also provide prospects that the governments and others in the world will have to put much more emphasis focusing on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), they all had agreed already in 2015. That means much more focus on those types of tourism, which support SDGs. From our perspective, the highest priority should go to the biodiversity SDGs 14 & 15, respectively related forms of tourism. Therefore, LT&C has to play an even more critical role. We need to raise an increasing discussion with our LT&C-Example providers, how their essential work can be secured, upscaled and replicated.

Biodiversity-supporting tourism needs to come up much higher on the world’s agenda!

Read in this context also the guest article, which has been published yesterday by the three co-chairs of the IPBES Global Assessment Report, together with IPBES nexus assessment scoping expert Dr. Peter Daszak. Click here to read this article in  عربى / español / English / français / русский /中文 / Deutsch. The title and main message of this article are:

COVID-19 Stimulus Measures Must 
Save Lives, Protect Livelihoods, and Safeguard Nature
to Reduce the Risk of Future Pandemics

LT&C recently has approached all providers of LT&C-Examples to share information about their present situation, ideas and activities to overcome the present challenges. We like to republish herewith the emergency call of our member and LT&C-Example provider Basecamp Explorer
