At the 14th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 14), which will be held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt from 17 to 29 November 2018, LT&C is organising a side event, where Island-States will present their examples of tourism supporting conservation of nature: Invitation Side Event COP14
The side event will be hosted by Seychelles and Palau through the Global Islands Partnership (GLISPA). Tourism is the economic sector contributing most directly and significantly to the establishment and management of protected areas globally, thereby contributing to Aichi Targets 11 and 20. This workshop will allow SIDS GLISPA member states and tourism professionals to showcase leading examples of positive contributions, and discuss ways and incentives for these experiences to be replicated by other Parties and players.
If you are at COP14 and interested to participate at the side event, please
